What evidence is there that spending more on "gender gap" will have any measurable impact on "gender gap"? I also note that you say "projects" have not "emerged". That sounds like people do not actually have ideas how to "impact" "gender gap" with money. Could you identify a couple of projects that would have considerable "impact" on "gender gap" but that have been refused funding in the past due to a lack of "focus" on "gen- der gap"? -- Björn Höhrmann · mailto:bjo...@hoehrmann.de · http://bjoern.hoehrmann.de D-10243 Berlin · PGP Pub.
