Women in Innovation blog-1.png

So many women have advanced science, technology and the convenience of our ordinary lives through their innovation, so we're celebrating their stories. For World Intellectual Property Day, we joined WIPO in recognising the brilliance of women innovators who changed the world. Spanning centuries, we share these ingenious innovators' stories, which also represent the thousands who may never be recognised.
