Women Who Have Changed the World

 Q:        
Women Who Have Changed the World by Herminne Tonita -

Ruth Handler

At the beginning of the 50s Ruth Handler observed that her little girl, Barbara and her friends were playing with dolls that represented adult women but also children. Handler thought it was important for her little girl to know how will be like when they grow mature, and because at the time the dolls representing women were made of paper, she decided to create a "women doll", which she named Barbie, as her daughter.
Barbie was long haired, dressed in a bathing suit and wearing high hills and she always used to match her earrings with her sunglasses and her purse. You could buy her a wide range of clothes and accessories. From 1959 onwards Barbie became a true American symbol, which functions as a "dream character" but also represents an image of th e American society always changing.

Josephine G. Cochran

The dish washer was invented by Josephine G. Cochran. Annoyed by all the servants who used to break all her China all the time, Cochran said: "If nobody is planning to invent the dish washer, then I'll do it myself." In fact, a dish washer made of wood had been invented in 1850 by Joel Houghton. The version created by Cochran appeared in 1886 and it was presented at the International Fair from Chicago in 1893.

Randice Lisa Altschul

In a world of communication and information the mobile phone stopped representing a luxury. Lisa Altschul, a toy and games designer thought in creating a phone so cheap that it could be thrown away. The reason? One day, while she was driving in a very crowded area and she was also talking on the phone she lost the signal. She was so upset that she wanted to throw it out of the window but she realized she was about to give away a very expensive cellular. Therefore she invented a very cheap phone, o a credit card shape that incorporates the so called "super thin technology".
