A woman who invented an invisible glass.

Katharine Blodgett received a master's degree in the University of Chicago in 1918. She became the first female scientist, who took a job at a research lab of General Electric.

It quickly became popular thanks to its crystal-clear view. Later, scientists have perfected Katharine Blodgett's method of glass creation.

#7 – Tabitha Babbitt

The woman who invented the circular saw.

Shakers were a religious sect of the 18th century. Strict rules in their community were "equality of the sexes." Tabitha Babbitt was among the first people who are credited with creating the circular saw.

The idea came to Babbitt after she saw how men use awkward two-handed saw. She realized that they waste half of their movements. Babbitt's circular saw was first used at the mill in 1813. Nevertheless, being religious shaker, she didn't patent any of her inventions. Three years later two Frenchmen patented circular saw after the discovery of design in documents of shakers.
