The mother of invention

A woman has beaten sixty other entrants to win an award for best inventor! Not bad. Maybe women can sometimes beat men in the realms of science and innovation after all.

Oh, hang on…

Jayne received her award from the British Female Inventors and Innovators Network (BFIIN) at a ceremony at the Guildhall in London on Tues 21 February.

Ah, so that’s how they ensure women can win in such contests; only allow women to enter.

A bit like the Orange Prize for Fiction.
