10 Great Things You Didn’t Know Were Invented By Women


We’re all excited to find out ten inventions that women actually came up with but before we start, how many inventions can you think of that were made by women?

If you can’t come up with ten or even five things, don’t worry. This list will be your guide (aka the Yoda to your Luke Skywalker).

1. Kevlar Fiber

For those of you who don’t know, Kevlar fiber is the reason why bulletproof vests are…well bulletproof. With synthetic fibers that are stronger than steel, Kevlar has saved a lot of real (and fictional) lives. Its applications range from body armor to gloves and bike tires among other things.

This is all thanks to Stephanie Kowlek in 1965. The Kevlar is an accidental invention but hey, so was the microwave.
