    Marie Skłodowska-Curie invented the first portable X-ray for WWI and died likely due to her chronic exposure to radiation related to its use.

    The first that comes to mind is Marie Curie. . . .but there are so many who didn't get the credit they deserved! Did you know that the circular saw was invented by a woman, the windshield wiper, the dishwasher, liquid paper. . . So many!

    Here is an article that explains it very well:

    And:

    Well, the first invention, if you want to call it an invention was that women were the first to invent prostitution.

    Or here are some other inventions by women.

    Henrietta Leavitt discovered a way to accurately measure distances to nearby galaxies. Her discovery allowed Hubble to develop his theories. She was to be nominated for a Nobel prize in physics except her pre-mature death disqualified her

    If you told your wife that men are smarter, then this makes your smarts somewhere in line between a empty coffee can and a discarded hermit crab shell. Husbands out there . . . what say you?

    A friend of mine too said women are smarter, she doesn't have any significant qualification, and without a job, she also is a feminist so watch out saying they are not. Another one said women are smarter too, but she had problems finishing her high school. Many men said women are less smart but in fact they are not geniuses either. I just enjoy the crude truth when it comes to reality.

    Rosalind Elsie Franklin was central to the discovery of the structure of DNA, was virtually ignored, but died before the Nobel prize was awarded anyway.

    Each inventor had a mother who was a female. Many of the inventors had wives who were cooking and caring of their health. Is it not enough?

    Why would you say that about him and not his wife? After all, she said women were smarter. I always question men who are so quick to sell out their own sex. Makes me wonder where they left their balls.


    ^She's a badass. I've watched a lot of her videos. Anti-feminist women make my heart sing. Check out the title of this one:

    They were probably too busy taking care of everyone so that the men had the luxury of tinkering in their garages.
    Einstein once acknowledged that he wouldn't have been able to discover relativity if his wives had not been taking care of the home and family and freed him to think.
    He called it his real secret behind relativity.

    Some things we use all days had invented by women.

    For example the windshield wiper [Mary Anderson] ... without that women we [men] would clean the windshield still using the hands!

    Public gas illumination wasn't a male invention, I guess women needed stable light to stay out at night, more than men [?]

    The wheelchair had invented by a woman [women often assist very aged elders and persons with problems in family ...]

    Also the life jacket had invented by a woman.

    About computers someone else has already reminded something.

    But the greatest female invention which has been affecting our life since the ancient past is ...

    contraceptive methods.

    From the Egyptians which used a real pill [:weed:pomegranate seeds contain estrogens] to the Roman women who put excrements on the vagina [!!!]:eyepopping:

    There were a few female inventors, but it's mostly men. Men have shown a natural leaning to the hard science
