We've all heard of Marie Curie, the famous scientist who was a pioneer in radioactive metals, but what about the rest of the famous women throughout the years that changed the way we live with their inventions? Alas, here are history's most under-appreciated female inventors.
These ladies, either intentionally or unintentionally, created, discovered or invented some of the most useful products in the world. Without these inventions, who is to say we may have never have been able to use disposable diapers, windshield wipers, correction fluid, cell phones or baby carriers.
If those useful products are not enough, how about living without your favorite childhood doll Barbie or going without chocolate chip cookies? All of these items, and many more, were invented by women, but rarely get the credit that they deserve.
So ladies the next time you complain that your man does not appreciate you, put yourself in the shoes of one of these non-famous inventors.
