Household Items You Might Not Know Were Invented by Women

In 1872, author and researcher Amanda Jones invented a vacuum method for canning, which was called the “Jones process.” It consisted of food preservation, in which its contents were processed and sealed in an airtight container. She obtained 5 patents on her invention. In 1880, she founded the Women’s Canning and Preserving Company in Chicago, which strongly supported women’s rights and suffrage.
