On the eve of Woodrow Wilson’s 1913 inauguration, Alice Paul organized over 8,000 women in a march down Pennsylvania Avenue from the Capitol to the White House. Troops were called to help the suffragists get to their destination but it was 7 more years before women voted for the first time in the 1920 presidential election. The fight took 72 years, spanning two centuries, 18 presidencies, and three wars. Go Alice!

Top Things Women Invented! "what a man can do, a woman can do it more better"...http://adf.ly/cbKpf
In 1886, Josephine Cochran proclaims in disgust "If nobody else is going to invent a dishwashing machine, I'll do it myself." And she did, Josephine Cochran invented the first practical (did the job) dishwasher. Josephine Cochran had expected the public to welcome the new invention, which she unveiled at the 1893, World's Fair, but only the hotels and large restaurants were buying her ideas. Josephine Cochran's machine was a hand-operated mechanical dishwasher.
This is a picture of the first dish washer that was used consistently and worked the best for people. In 1880 it made life a lot more easier for those doing work around the house or restaurant. Although the dishwasher was invented in the 1850's, Josephine Cochran became the first to make a hand operated machine that continued to benefit all of us across the world.
