I saw this question on Reddit and thought I'd post here as well. For me personally, I would hope that better birth control and better treatment for women's health in particular would be more widespread (as especially with medical research and treatments specifically geared towards women that doesn't just treat women like the smaller versions of men solely because women's hormones are too "mEsSy" to study with apparently).

And on that topic, what other type of scientific advancement or innovation do you think could heavily benefit women specifically if it were ever to come to be?

I think we would have solved the mind/body health connection by now if more women were scientists and doctors. The medical profession would look entirely different.

I think we’d be much more advanced in materials science which would allow us to be far more sustainable and pro-environment in our approach. Women care more about the environment.

I think we’d be far more advanced in the field of psychiatry/psychology, if that counts, particularly with regard to trauma studies. I think that would fall under health.
