  • 11选五赚钱方法:Gender Equality and Intellectual Property

    Men and women are equally creative and innovative. Yet, women remain under-represented in many areas.

    WIPO is committed to promoting gender equality and women’s empowerment both within the Organization and in the wider world of intellectual property (IP).

    WIPO's Policy on Gender Equality PDF, WIPO's Policy on Gender Equality, adopted in 2014, aims to provide a general framework for how the Organization aims to integrate a gender perspective in its policies and programs.

    The Challenge: Gender Gaps and Insufficient Data

    Despite general improvements in gender equality around the world, gender gaps in patenting, in particular, persist. WIPO’s latest data show that just 30.5% of the international patent applications filed via the Organization included at least one women inventor.

    While it is encouraging that the number of PCT applications with at least one woman inventor has nearly doubled since 2007, gender parity remains a distant prospect.  Assuming that the trend continues, the numbers are expected to balance out only in 2076.

    Furthermore, only limited data is available with which to measure women’s contributions in other areas of intellectual property, such as trademarks and copyright. As such, more work is needed to ensure that both men and women can equally access and use the IP system and profit fully from their creative and innovative assets.

    Do Patents have Gender?

    Over the past several decades, gender studies have influenced numerous areas of law, often illuminating hidden biases that had gone unappreciated. This research paper discusses gender issues in patent law, relating patents to the previous literature on law and gender, and suggesting potential ways forward for equitable systems of innovation and creativity.
