executive summary
From the eradication of foot binding to foot pedaled water pumps, from the Pill to property
rights, innovation can transform women’s lives. Virtuous circles of change can be sparked
by women’s use of a seemingly simple technology; a shift in social attitudes about what is
possible for women; or increased access for women to economic opportunities, employment,
savings and credit.
More than at any other time...
