Mother of Invention

A salon with Katrine Kielos-Marçal

 Ideas  / Thurs 14 March / 6.30 - 8:30 pm


Katrine’s latest book Mother of Invention is an eye-opening examination of business, technology, and innovation through a feminist lens. It argues that gender bias stifles the economy and holds us back, delaying innovations, sometimes by hundreds of years, and distorting our understanding of our history. While we talk about the Iron Age and the Bronze Age, we could also talk about the “Ceramic Age” or the “Flax Age,” since these technologies were just as important. But inventions associated with women are not considered to be technology in the same way. She will argue that if we upend our biases, we can unleash our full potential.
