10 Groundbreaking Female Inventors to tell them about in Wyoming

The war on women continues. Current battlefronts include places like Wyoming[1], Iran and Afghanistan, where the local Taliban or whatever they call themselves, are up to their old tricks.

Before you join them, have a look at this piece from History Hit,[2] which came up from our researchers yesterday. Okay, we’ve already done Ada Lovelace (LSS 24 7 21) and we always knew Hedy Lamarr was a genius with an off-the-scale IQ.  But take a look at some of the others. Anne Tsukamoto: Stem Cell Isolation. Shirley Anne Jackson: Caller ID. Patricia Bath: Laser Cataract surgery. Grace Hopper: Computer compilers. And there are more ,as you will discover in this excellent little piece by Lucy Davidson.

And what do the women haters offer by comparison?   Guns. Poverty. Boredom. Quotes from old books, usually out of context, and in complete ignorance of the linguistic and historical origins of the said texts. Repression both physical, and of the infinitely more insidious psychological kind. Could it be possible, just once that even one of them, somewhere, might just consider the possibility that they’ve got it all wrong?
