Sarah S. Goode was the first African American woman to have received a patent in 1885 (patent #322,177, approved on July 14, 1885). She invented the folding cabinet bed, a space-saver that folded up against the wall into a cabinet. When folded up, it could be used as a desk, complete with compartments for stationery and writing supplies. Goode owned a furniture store in Chicago, Illinois, and invented the bed for people living in small apartments.
In the early days of science and technology, women were not considered candidates for intellectual achievement. In today’s world, women are dominating in many fields.ReplyDelete
In the last few years, there has been a lot of progress made in this area. There is free access to information on the internet from anywhere in the world and thanks to social media platforms like Facebook or Twitter, a lot of people are exchanging information about science and technology. Write a dissertation about it.
Further advances in science will provide even more opportunities for women to enter these fields. They just have to keep up with their male counterparts by being able to think outside of their gender role and do what they love best - inventing something new!
