Mother of Invention
The first suitcase was invented in the 19th century. It wasn't until the 1970s that someone thought to put wheels on them. According to author Katrine Marçal, the reason for this is a lot to do with the patriarchy, with masculine ideals, and with the exclusion from history of women innovators and inventors.
Applying a feminist lens to economics, business and technology, Marçal shows how the exclusion of women has held the world back, and the negative implications this has for us, in the past, present and most worryingly - into the future.
