Employing female executives can optimize the gender structure of the top management team and bring more diversified decision-making perspectives to the enterprise. These new ideas will also help the enterprises develop high-quality innovation. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to try to find an effective way to improve the R&D innovation ability of enterprises from the characteristics of the top management team. From the perspective of female executives, this study uses big data technology—the Web crawler to obtain more accurate background information of executives, and then conducts an empirical analysis through Stata on the relationship between female executives and technology generality in 244 listed companies from 2009 to 2019, while introducing executive political connection to study its moderating effect. Through the research, we draw the following conclusions: (1) The relationship between female executive participation and technology generality is inverted U-shaped; (2) Executive political connection has a negative moderating effect on female executive participation and technology generality.
