It is well reported that women face many hurdles in achieving equality in the workplace. Intellectual property is one area where women are still generally under-represented. A study from the Institute for Women’s Policy Research published in 2016 concluded that women are greatly under-represented as patent holders. For example, in 2010, only 18.8% of all patents included at least one woman inventor. While the representation of women as patent holders varies greatly among patent classes, only one class (chemistry: natural resins or derivatives) includes at least 50% of all patents having at least one female inventor.
