I think we should remember, with the United Nations just having adopted the Sustainable Development Goals, that one of those goals is to achieve gender equality with a target, in particular, for women to gain equal rights to economic resources and access to ownership and control over property.  And property, of course, includes intellectual property.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
