    1 Disposable Diaper.


    Marion Donovan didn’t take all the mess out of diaper changing when she patented the waterproof Boater in 1951. But she changed parenting and well, babies forever. The waterproof diaper cover, originally made with a shower curtain, was first sold at Saks Fifth Avenue. Donovan sold the patent to the Keko Corporation for $1 million and then created an entirely disposable model a few years later. Pampers was born in 1961.

    2 Signal Flares.

    Communication between ships/planes was once limited to colored flags, lanterns, and screaming things like “Thar she blows!” really loudly. Martha Coston didn’t come up with the idea for signal flares all by herself. She found plans in a notebook that belonged to her late husband. The determined widow spent 10 years working with chemists and pyrotechnics experts to make the idea a reality. But she was only named administratrix in the 1859 patent Mr. Coston got credited as the inventor.

    3 Beer.

    We don’t know who invented the first formula for beer. But women were the first brewers, servers, and sellers of alcohol in society. Drinking beer at the local bar has origins with all signs pointing to women. Since the dawn of man, women were definitely brewing and selling a lot of beer. For thousands of years, we knew them as “brewsters” or “ale-wives.” This dates far back, 7,000 years ago, to ancient Mesopotamian and Sumerian civilizations. Brewers held the only profession deriving social sanction and divine protection from female goddesses Ninkasi, Siris, and Siduri to be exact. By law, women were the exclusive brewers in Norse society. And again in ancient Finland. In England, woman made beer in their homes by tradition. And the sale of alcohol was a great source of income for many households. Only in the late 18th century did gender-neutral methods for brewing beer come about.

    4 Car Heater.


    The first car heater, which directed air from over the engine to warm the chilly toes of aristocratic 19th-century motorists, was invented by Margaret A. Wilcox in 1893. She also invented a combined clothes and dish washer.

    5 Life Raft.

    One day in 1882, Maria Beasely looked out at the sea and said, “People should, like, stop dying in huge transportation disasters.” And then she invented life rafts. Beasely also invented a machine for making barrels, and it made her really rich.

    6 Medical Syringe.

    Wonders of modern medicine. In 1899, Letitia Geer invented a medical syringe that could be operated with only one hand. Remember her the next time your doctor injects you with only one hand.

    7 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 helpin her New York City neighbourhood. Her invention forms the basis for modern CCTV systems used for home security and police work today.
