Women who changed the world

Valerie Hunter Gordon has died.

inventor of the disposable diaper in 1948, because she got tired washing diapers the old fashioned way.

The two-part garments were initially made out of old nylon parachutes, tissue wadding and cotton wool.

and no, the time and detergent need to wash diapers made of cloth mean the "eco" criticism part is not quite true... however, now you can have it both ways since eco friendly diapers can be bought at a high price.
