The author encourages not only women of all ages but also young children to be inventors. Additionally she mentions the imagination, invention, creation, discovery and development of several products by women, who came up with their bright ideas and experimental solutions which eventually became products that are still in use today. In the beginning, their works focused on agricultural products such as the cotton gin and the grain harvester. The second example includes women’s products like bras, the space suit and the ingredients of a cereal starch which combined knowledge of biochemistry and microbiology. Another example is the cure for many diseases such as childhood Leukemia, treatments for gout and herpes and the first drug for AIDs.I definitely recommend all women and young children read this book.
