Femtech is on track to be the next big disruptor in the global healthcare market.  But why has is taken so long for application of modern technology to women’s health to become widespread?  Here we will examine the role stigma has played in innovation in women’s health, we’ll use landmark patents to track the development of femtech, and we’ll ask: where next?
