Developing a code of their own: Are women leading the tech revolution in Paris?
Issued on: Modified:
Is it really a female-led tech revolution here in Paris, as some are claiming? The reality is the statistics are still pretty bleak with recent figures revealing just 33 percent of the French digital sector's employees being female and with only nine percent of start-ups being led by women. We speak to Roxanne Varza, the head of Station F (the world’s largest start-up incubator campus located here in Paris).
Also we take a look at America's opioid crisis that's leading to a rapid rise in the number of women being jailed across the country. Plus how a group of women in Kenya came up with a novel idea to protect themselves from gender-based violence.
