Women inventing cool stuff
6 April 2009
I’m sure you already know that women have invented some really cool stuff
(and yes, a lot of them did it like Ginger, in high heels and backwards).
I’m not good for much today — still making my stand at the precipice of microbial infestation, repelling invaders with my mighty ibuprofen and vitamin C — but I betcha none of these women would have let a little illness stop them from inventing frozen pizzas or torpedo guidance systems. And as soon as I stop hacking my lungs up, I’m going to be just like them.
Women who make things impress the hell out of me. I made a box once that would hold a full water glass stable on the nightstand so the cat couldn’t knock it over at night (our Bella, Zack’s sister, had a passion for bopping things until they fell down). It was just a little thing, but I made it myself, and it pleased Nicola enormously. It’s probably the only useful thing I even conceived and executed in that particular inventive way.
So I admire the women in this article tremendously. If you know about any other cool women inventors, please feel free to share here.
Enjoy your Monday.
