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.
