Why dont women patent?Name:Professor:University:Class:Date:From the podcast, one could get the notion that women play very little role in patent ownership. But why is this case? We get that when we look at patent filling, women are only responsible for averagely 7% of patent files leaving about 93% patent holdings for men. This is wanting! Even in employment positions or job opportunities, men are likely to be found venturing in career jobs which promote patenting. This well explains the male female patent gaping across the board in different industries within the society ranging from business, medicine or education. Thus, women tend to gravitate towards the lowly paying jobs within these fields. In a research conducted by an economics lecturer Britain, First year students of his economics class were separated to have both same sex classes and mixed classes. After 8 weeks of class, the lecturer learnt that there was an equal behavior between the female students as well as the male students. Interesting enough, when both were combined into a mixed class, the female students would relax, hold back and give room for the male students to take over. This experiment revealed to the professor that female students compete more among them than when they were mixed with the male students.In a late NBER paper, Jennifer Hunt et al. present a stark certainty that only 5.5% of the holders of marketed licenses are ladies. One may feel that this is clarified
