The Female Company's Female Condoms Examined

July 8, 2009

Fortune Small Business/CNNMoney.com examines The Female Health Company's efforts to create and sell a female condom. When the current CEO joined the company in 1985, the "very notion of a female condom had a rough road ahead," Fortune Small Business/CNNMoney.com writes, adding, "To sell one would mean building a global market for it." After overcoming various obstacles, 2008 was a "great" year for the company. While this year "looks good as well," Female Health has "only made tiny inroads into the market. In 2007, more than 11 billion male condoms were delivered around the world, in contrast to 27 million female ones," writes Fortune Small Business/CNNMoney.com (Grant, 7/7).
