Even though this claim is questionable as we cannot exactly say who invented the beer thousands of years ago, we can definitely say that ancient women sure did contribute to the art of brewing beer.
2. Modern Electric Refrigerator
We have to thank Florence Parpart for the refrigerators that we use at our homes. Parpart invented the modern electric refrigerator in 1914.

This is only a claim and is not supported by facts. Parpart also has a patent for a vastly improved street-cleaning machine.

She not only attended trade shows but also developed and designed unique advertising campaigns.
