Read a small slice of life or work – of 70 women (and a girl) from many parts of the world, and from ancient times to now, Read short easy-to-read (sometimes amusing) poems. You may have heard of some of the women, but not all. Do you know how a coffee filter was invented? Who at first was not interested in a dishwasher? And what about those Titanic lifeboats? A cure for leprosy? Windshield wipers? Silk? Who figured out atom-splitting while hiking in snow?
