Innovate for Change.
This is the theme for the UN’s International Women’s Day, March 8, 2019. This special day is not just about celebrating women, rather, it’s about addressing the issues that put women on unequal footing with men in the first place. This year, Innovation has been identified as a key to unlocking the door to gender equality.
The theme of Innovation is close to our hearts at Cycle Technologies. For the past 17 years, we have been focusing on innovative technologies to improve the lives of women. In particular, this has meant zeroing in on a unique and basic aspect of life that sets women apart from men: childbearing.
Women need agency over their reproductive health, they need to be able to decide if and when to have children. They need access to a range of tools to help them do this effectively and affordably. We have been contributing to the spectrum of effective family planning options so that women have more viable choices.
Our family planning technologies are available all over the world. We are putting innovative solutions directly into the hands of the women who need them the most. We are helping women manage their reproductive health so that they can better take care of themselves, their families, and contribute to their communities.
The world needs the talents of both women and men. Society is better off when the whole population, not just half, participates.
Happy International Women’s Day!
