5 Things You Didn't Know Were Invented By Women

What a man can do, a woman can do better. Here are just a few things you might not have known were invented by women.



1. Dishwasher, Josephine Cochrane
In 1886, socialite Josephine Cochrane was annoyed that her servants kept breaking her china. So, she invented the first workable dishwasher.

2. Windshield Wiper, Mary Anderson
In 1903, Mary Anderson noticed drivers stopping to clear snow and ice off their windshields. She came up with the windshield wiper — an arm with a rubber blade that could be activated without getting out of your car. She applied for a patent in 1904, and it was issued in 1905.

3. Beer,
According to research conducted by historian Jane Peyton, for thousands of years brewing beer was a woman’s domain. According a 2010 Telegraph piece: “Nearly 7,000 years ago in Mesopotamia and Sumeria, so important were [women’s] skills that they were the only ones allowed to brew the drink or run any taverns.

4. CCTV
Marie Van Brittan Brown's system for closed-circuit television security, patented in 1969, was intended to help people ensure their own security, as police were slow to respond to calls for help in her New York City neighbourhood. Her invention forms the basis for modern CCTV systems used for home security and police work today

5. MONOPOLY
Elizabeth Magie created The Landlord's Game to spread the economic theory of Georgism—teaching players about the unfairness of land-grabbing, the disadvantages of renting, and the need for a single land value tax on owners.

See how backward the dates of their inventions are... Am not sure any other woman can invent any meaningful thing in this present time. Make up and fashion have taken over their reasoning...
