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"?
