Culture Site Project
Possible topics for the culture project:
-Sattareh Farman Farmaian is a Persian woman who brought family planning and birth control to Iran.
-Ann Tsukamoto is the co-patentee of a process to isolate a human stem cell.
-Dianne Croteau is a Canadian inventor of the CPR mannequin.
-Caterina Scarpellini was a meteorologist, astronomer, and mathematician. She discovered a comet in Italy in the 1800s.
-Hedy Lamarr helped invent spread spectrum technology.
-Patricia Bath invented many ocular devices.
WOW it has been difficult finding women who are not white Americans (I am a white American so the woman cannot be)! I suppose that is the purpose of this project- to show how inventions and technology is mainly reserved for white, American, men. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
