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! Famous and not well-known women inventors throughout history. Amazing - everything from dishwashers, comouters, improvement of hair the brush, curling irons, there's many things I thought for sure a man would have invented (don't know why) to many things only women use. Interesting!
Out of frustration, Josephine Cochrane invented the dishwasher. She'd been angry that hired domestic help continually broke and chipped her fine china. Cochrane's dishwasher used high water pressure aimed at a wire rack of dishes, she received a patent for it in 1886.During this era, most houses didn't have the technology of a hot water system to run such a machine, but Cochrane persisted and sold her idea to hotels and restaurants.

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.

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.
