    Throughout history women have been inventors but they have often not received the credit they deserve. They have played a vital role in the world of innovation, medicine and quality-of-life. Female inventors have had to overcome gender bias, lack of access to money or capital, and limited education opportunities. Those women who persevered gave us lifesaving inventions: from the board game Monopoly, to the ice-cream maker and the computer, women have made their mark on our culture and our lives.
