In a world full of technological advances, gadgets and devices to make life easier (or harder!) most of us assume many of these marvellous things were the work of men. That is not always the case women too have created brilliant inventions that bless our lives. Check out this list of Inventions created by women that changed the world.
We’ve all lost everything by landing on Mayfair in this super famous board game. Of course at some point everyone has played this game in one form or another. Responsible for many family arguments and in some cases board rag! Invented by Elizabeth Magie way back in 1904 originally named ‘The Landlord’s Game’. The game was originally intended to criticise capitalism in particular the many injustices that Elizabeth felt existed in the capitalist world she lived in. The game idea was stolen by Charles Darrow some 30 years after Elizabeth’s creation, Charles sold his idea to the Parker Brothers. Thankfully the Parker Brothers tracked down Elizabeth and paid her the sum of $500 for the game.
2. The Life Raft
A woman named Maria Beasely invented this life saver. It is said that she looked out at sea one day in 1882 and decided to end the death from shipping accidents. She took it upon herself to design and invent the life raft we know today that has surely saved many, many lives. Apparently she also invented a barrel making machine, ending up a very rich lady!
3. The Electric Refrigerator
Everytime you go to the fridge and take out something delicious think of Florence Parpart who invented this modern household necessity in 1914. In addition to this she also invented and patented an improved street cleaning machine which she marketed herself and successfully sold all across the USA.
