2018 – THE YEAR OF THE WOMAN: Without Us

A World Without Us – VulneraSanentur4

 

Without Anna Connelly, you would still be stuck in that burning building, plastered to the wall in fear.

Without her, you wouldn’t have an escape from a fire, as she created it.

 

Without Elizabeth Magie, you would still be bored when it’s raining outside, without any games to play.

Without her, you wouldn’t have Monopoly, as she created it – The Landlord’s Game.

 

Without Mary Anderson, you would still have rain and ice on your screen, leaving to clear it.

Without her, you wouldn’t have a windshield wiper, as she created it.

 

Without Grace Hopper, we wouldn’t even have this website.

Without her, you would even have these computers, as she created them.

 

Without Josephine Cochrane, you would be washing your dishes by hand.

Without her, you wouldn’t have a dishwasher, as she created it.

 

Without Ruth Graves Wakefield, your cookies would be bland and plain.

Without her, you wouldn’t have chocolate chip cookies, as she created them.

 

Without Gertrude Bell Elion, many people would be dying of diseases.

Without her, you wouldn’t have medicine for malaria, cancer, meningitis or AIDs, as she created them.

 

Without Hedy Lamarr, you wouldn’t be connected to the internet, or own a phone.

Without her, you wouldn’t have wireless communications, as she created it.

 

Without all these women, you would be living a different life.

So why are we so different?

    I agree!!!If all these women did so many amazing things than why are women still treated unfairly? Men should appreciate women more because if women didn’t exist than men wouldn’t either because women produce men. PurpleDolphin2020

    I agree because, if women hadn’t made these wonderful inventions, we wouldn’t be led to the world that we live in now. We should reward women for changing the world with the amazing creations , or without them, we won’t be able to call our relatives,fight in any war, play games with other friends and cook food for our family, instead of actually treating them with no fairness. Would you like to live in a world without women?

    The america national is not sexist but United kingdom is saying God save the Queen.

    • I think that England’s national anthem is not sexist, because at the time, Queen Elizabeth II was our ruler (and still is). If you were to change the national anthem’s lyrics to, “God save the King.” it would be irrevelent as we don’t have a king. It might change, when the next heir comes to the throne.

      Throughout History, the British nations anthem is changed every time there is a gender change in the current reigning monarch.

      Magicalbunny3816, I think it says god save the Queen because in England at the moment we have a Queen and not a king. Purplepotato

    I agree. These things have changed our lives and helped us through our daily life yet these women don’t get the same respect as man would if he done all of this effort and work making these things just for us!

    It is ‘God save the Queen’ because we are currently ruled by Queen Elizabeth. When she dies (long live the Queen though), we will be taken over by a King. Therefore, it will become ‘God save the King’.

    THANK YOU! I knew about the window wipers and we also wouldn’t have wi-fi without women.

    Maybe international men’s day will be more popular than international woman’s day but I hope not because men could do anything a 100 years ago like voting but woman couldn’t, but without women we wouldn’t have a queen and men would be alone and not have a girlfriend. So I say women should be as equal as men have been for a long time.

    I disagree because most of the women you mentioned invented things we enjoy but we don’t necessarily need. Of course we needed her in the fire but firefighters do that all the time.

    I do believe these women did a fantastic job as well i do believe that we weren’t being treated the same. As women aren’t being payed as much as men which I understand but now it is just getting out of hand. Such as people being offended about the word Snow ‘man’ Fire ‘man’ and i think that is just pathetic.

    I think that all woman should get equal rights they should be able to do whatever they want to do and if they want to travel then they can or if they want to builder then they can do that too.

    I agree with your point! Women have created so many amazing things and also have also accomplished stuff that’s very difficult. For example, my brother said the person with the highest IQ is a man because boys are better than girls. Actually, the person with the highest IQ is a girl and the smartest person is Stephen Hawkings who recently died.

    I agree that if women hadn’t created these things, our life today would be completely different. I also think that women should be treated the same as men because they contributed in making the world how it is today. Men shouldn’t be treated unfairly if women are beginning to gain their right to be in power because we would have the same issue.
