Here is a list of things that women have invented (some that we even still use today):

  • "Apgar score" for assesssing the health of infants
  • windshield wipers
  • a way of processing film
  • non-reflecting glass
  • fireproof building material
  • the world's first antifungal antibiotic
  • dishwasher
  • maritime signal flares
  • the cpr mannequin
  • radium and x-rays
  • the leukemia-fighting drug 6-mercaptopurine
  • drugs that facilitated kidney transplants and other drugs for the treatment of cancer and leukemia
  • pertroleum refining technology
  • naturally coloured cotton
  • white-out
  • x-rays to find the structural layouts of atoms and to discover the overall molecular shape of over 100 molecules including: penicillin, vitamin B-12, vitamin D and insulin
  • computerized telephone switching system
  • a material five times stronger than steel called Kevlar.

And even way more than that. Medical advances, scientific advances, amazing engineers, designers, doctors, inventors, film-makers, writers, artists, huminitarians, politicians, soldiers, and more, can be women. There is nothing a woman is not capable of doing just because she is a woman.

Just wanted to reblog this list too.  Also, the hydrometer.  And the home diabetes test.
