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.
