A cheer for multifaceted women
Whether it's female inventors or Nobel Prize winners: there are many exceptional women. Did you know that for long time women were not allowed to patent their inventions?
Women's intellectual property belonged to men
Many inventions are attributable to women. However, this does not always apply to the relevant patents, because as far back as the 19th century, everything a woman had was owned by her husband. For this reason, women often sold their inventions or had them patented under their husband's name.
Well-known things - invented by women
Female inventors were also more common in earlier times than one might think. For example, not only the precursor of our pressure cooker, the production of Camembert, the champagne storage, the coffee filter and the disposable diaper were developed by women, but also the dishwasher, the correction fluid TippEx, the Paulus parachute and the windshield wiper system of cars.
Female Nobel laureates
Moreover, there are also women among the Nobel laureates. After Marie Curie, who was the first woman to receive a Nobel Prize in physics in 1903, there are other female laureates. For example, Rita Levi-Montalcini (medicine), Irène Joliot-Curie (chemistry), Bertha von Suttner, Mother Theresa and Rigoberta Menchù (peace) as well as Selma Lagerlöf, Grazia Deledda, Pearl S. Buck, Toni Morrison or Doris Lessing (literature), to name but a few.
