You will probably find it difficult to
name any women inventors. Why is this? Weren’t women interested in science? The

women could not be named, here is a brief look at a few. Bette Nesmith Graham: Liquid paper
was the invention of Bette Nesmith Graham. In an effort to cover her typing
mistakes, she painted over them with a bottle of white paint and a water colour
brush. By 1956, Graham’s invention gained so much popularity that four years
later she sold her company to Gillette for

47.5 million.

Grace Murray Hopper: Few
people have done as much to change the world as Grace Murray Hopper; In her
work with the first computers; she put us on the way of making computers
