Throughout history famous women inventors and mostly, not so famous women inventors, have contributed immensely to the world of invention and innovation. Women inventors are the creators of a wide variety of inventions that we all take for granted. For instance here are some of the inventions women are responsible for: the disposable cell phone, liquid paper, flat-bottom paper grocery bags, scotch-guard and even the Kevlar that’s used in body armor.
Think of the struggle women must have endured and probably still endure to some extent just to be taken seriously by the men they were surrounded by. Imagine growing up as a girl in the 1800’s and 1900’s and being interested in anything mechanical, electrical, or scientific.
