Did you know that the material used to make firefighter helmets and bulletproof vests was invented by a woman?
Brilliant Ideas From Wonderful Women: 15 incredible inventions from inspiring women is a brilliant tribute to fifteen amazingly creative women whose inventions made our world a better and safer place to live in. Car heaters and windshield wipers, Wi-fi, Bluetooth and GPS, sea flares and life rafts, diagnostic tests and syringes -all of them were invented by women. Millions and millions of mothers can spend happy hours playing, interacting, raising their children instead of spending half of their life on mindless housework drudgery thanks to dishwashers, nappies and washing machines.
I loved the way this book lets us discover the story behind the inventions and how hard these women had to fight to get their ideas accepted.
Children should grow up knowing these names: Margaret Wilcox, Marion Donovan, Stephanie Kwolek, Hedy Lamarr to name just a few.
