Behind Every Successful Woman is a...Woman

In honor of Women’s History Month, we want to celebrate a few of the women who have played an integral role in the development of modern-day health, wellness, and beauty.  After all, ladies….don’t you think they deserve recognition??? 

Read on to learn about the important contributions of these very smart, talented women.


Jane Cooke Wright
Jane Cooke Wright (also known as "Jane Jones") was a pioneering cancer researcher and surgeon noted for her contributions to chemotherapy. In particular, Wright is credited with developing the technique of using human tissue culture rather than laboratory mice to test the effects of potential drugs on cancer cells - thus literally saving millions of lives. She also pioneered the use of the drug methotrexate to treat breast cancer and skin cancer (mycosis fungoides).


Mary Kay Ash

We all know who this business-savvy lady is!  The founder of Mary Kay Cosmetics, she provided thousands of women the opportunity to achieve personal and financial success through the sales of her famous cosmetics line.  And, hey, some of these aspiring entrepreneurs even got a pink Cadi out of it.  Not a bad gig!


Martha Matilda Harper

Love getting your hair shampooed at the salon as you lay back and relax?  You can thank this business visionary for that.  Martha Matilda Harper discovered retail franchising in the late 1800s and built a network of more than 500 hair salons, owned by women she trained. And, yep...she invented the reclining shampoo chair we love so much!


Clara Barton

Clara Barton was a schoolteacher turned nurse during the Civil War. During a visit to Europe, she worked with a relief organization known as the International Red Cross. Upon her arrival back in the states, she petitioned for an American branch. The American Red Cross was founded in 1881, and Barton served as its first president.  Could you imagine life today without the Red Cross?  Neither can we.


Madam C. J. Walker

Sarah Breedlove (December 23, 1867 – May 25, 1919), known as Madam C. J. Walker, was an American entrepreneur and philanthropist, regarded as the first female self-made millionaire in America. She made her fortune by developing and marketing a successful line of beauty and hair products for black women under the company she founded, Madame C.J. Walker Manufacturing Company.


These next two ladies really hit the nail on the head as far as daily provisions with these inventions:


Josephine Cochrane

One thing most women can agree on…we hate washing dishes!  Lucky for us, Josephine Cochrane concocted the first mechanical dishwasher in 1886 and presented it at the 1893 World's Fair.  We simply can’t come up with enough ways to thank her!


Caresse Crosby

We have mixed reactions on this one…you’ll have to decide for yourself.  Caresse Crosby is the renowned inventor of the first modern bra, which was patented in 1914. Friend or foe….what do you think?

While these examples do not even scratch the surface of the many contributions of women in history, they certainly exemplify the power of a strong woman who is not afraid to aspire to be all that she can be. 


Mother Theresa said sums it up best:
“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.”

These ladies most definitely cast their stone!


Attention, all women!
