The Women Inventors Project (1988)

Women's Education des femmes, Fall 1988 - Vol. 6, No. 4

This article discusses The Women Inventors Project, a non-profit educational program founded in 1986 and based in Waterloo, Ontario. Women obviously have the drive, creativity and ability to invent successfully but there are still relatively few women anywhere who receive patents on their inventions. According to the Canadian patent office, only one percent of Canadians receiving patents are women; that is, less than ten per year. The Women Inventors Project was designed to improve these dismal statistics. It was the first program in North America aimed specifically at women inventors.
