"I'm very curious to know what she expects the tech companies to actually do here?"

I would expect the usual, incentives to raise profits.

Lets expect tons of even smaller cameras, addon gadgets, wide angle lenses, motion detectors, pattern recognition and image processing software.....

Many cultures still treat women as inferior or something like a pet or personal property. Not much difference to many states.

It took germany until the late 1980ies to classify rape in marriage as a crime. Home violence took more than a decade longer. At least the "Kranzgeld" was binned in the beginning of the 1970ies. It was a fee you had to pay a deflowered woman if you had promised her marriage formally ("Verlobung") but then refused to marry her. Only if she insisted to go to court and ruining her reputation, of course.

I shudder to imagine how many women refuse to go to court as they must be sure their "reputation" or "honour" will be damaged even further. Emancipation and civilization still have a long, long way to go.

The obsessively enforced genderspeeching does not help anyone, its a political cosmetic to show off how much "equality" is wanted while actually avoiding doing anything relevant on those issues.
