Women haven’t always gotten the credit they deserve when it comes to science. Despite adversity, though, many prevailed, and were not only able to make massive contributions to various STEM fields, but they helped pave the way for others to do the same. This tote bag celebrates pioneering women from over the centuries, and you can find it at Svaha for $25.
Featuring the faces of scientists in a repeating colored print, you’ll find women such as Ada Lovelace, who wrote what’s considered to be the world’s first computer program back in the 1840s; Kalpana Chawla, the first Indian-born woman to travel to space; Gertrude B. Elion, who helped develop groundbreaking medicine to treat leukemia; and many other faces. The bag is made of 100 percent canvas and stands at 15 inches tall by 19 inches long with a width of 8 inches. So it's big enough to accommodate whatever you need for your daily commute, a shopping trip, or a day trip to the beach.
While this bag covers many trailblazers, it isn’t possible to feature them all. Learn more about artists, athletes, politicians, and writers who made history by checking out our list of 101 women who changed the world.
