“How can we harness innovation’s power to empower women and promote greater gender equality?”
A new study launched by the International Centre for Research on Women (ICRW) looks at recent innovations designed to improve women’s lives in developing countries. While some of these innovations have greatly benefited women, others have had the opposite effect and have been more beneficial to men. Looking at past successful initiatives such as microcredit and mobile phones, the study discusses the different elements necessary to create a pro-women innovation.
