Patently Female: From AZT to TV Dinners, Stories of Women Inventors and Their Breakthrough Ideas
Ethlie Ann Vare (au); Greg Ptacek (au); Ruth Handler (fr)
The disposable diaper, the drip coffeemaker, the automatic dishwasher, the frozen pizza, the first computer language, the cordless phone, the first effective treatment for smallpox, the first electric motor, the marine signal flare, & the world’s first tract housing were all conceived of & developed by women. In virtually every field of human endeavor, female inventors have made significant, sometimes revolutionary, contributions -- from Liquid Paper to Scotchgard, from the cotton gin to chemotherapy. This book salutes the ingenuity & imagination, resourcefulness & tenacity, of these women, who have been too long unsung & too frequently unrewarded. Also visits the cutting edge of modern technol. & the women who are developing wonders to come. Ill.
