Women Inventors
from 1790 to July 1, 1888

In the last 134 years since the original publication of this book, women have sought to invent a future no one else could see. This book acknowledges the names seen and unseen. It sees the hours placed into invention, it stares fear in the eyes and sees the obstacles these women had to face. It places a name in history that was left behind. But we know these aren’t all the names. We need your help to find the missing inventors. Will you join us?
