The National Bureau of Economic Research found in 2012 that patent holders are only 7.5% female. Commercial patents are held by an even smaller percentage of women, 5.5%. The gender gap in patents is an indication of larger issues in intellectual property rights law, in which traditionally feminine work is not protected. Despite the resulting patent and earnings gender gap, even in products created for feminine consumption, there is one very strange and very small invention that offers gender parity—which Moore will reveal at the event.
