All of the following were discovered or invented by women: nuclear fission, pink champagne, solar heating, the bra, drip coffee, radioactivity, the Barbie doll, pulsars, the ice cream cone. But how many of these women's names and achievements are remembered by history? Informative, poignant and sometimes very funny, this book presents the stories of some remarkable women who did not let the odds stop them from tinkering with the way things were and coming up with something better.
