Sydney was an inventor himself and patented a pants pants presser in nineteen fourteen. Mary's maternal grandfather was also well known inventor his most important contributions attract color light signal for trains Though Mary received a good education she didn't have any formal scientific training instead with she and her sister were constantly encouraged courage to come up with creative solutions for problems. They saw in everyday life. Mary moved to Washington. DC got married and started her own Floral Laurel business that she ran throughout her life in her free time she kept inventing in Nineteen fifty-six. Mary put together a formal formal patent application for the first sanitary belt. She hit apparently invented while still in her teens. This was a major step forward forward in giving women a better way to handle their periods while tampons were available at the time they were considered. Indecent and pads wouldn't become available until nineteen sixty. Most women were still using cloth or rags and we're limited in their ability to leave the house while menstruating Mary. Sanitary sanitary belt was a major improvement. It was made of Elastic straps that held the patent place once the belt was secured by safety pins women could easily wear it under their clothing without feeling limited giving them back a significant amount of freedom a company interested in manufacturing this new invention had contacted Mary about purchasing it but as soon as a representative met her in person and realized that she was African American.

Let's rewind to the era of the french revolution. Just talk about the woman responsible for the assassination of joplin leader. Jean palmera villainess of the day is charlotte corday. It's important to note that this month we're talking about women who actually did commit unforgivable crimes as well as women who are remembered as villains in history books or in the popular imagination <music> but who may deserve a second. I believe charlotte corday falls into the latter category but you'll be the judge the answer cordaid. Our mom was born in normandy in seventeen sixty to a minor socratic family.

Her mother and elder sister both died charlotte's father sent her and her younger sister to an abbey in con- because he couldn't handle his grief and the two girls they're sherlock first came into contact with the teachings humanist thinkers such as plutarch rousseau and voltaire voltaire booze thinkers heavily influenced the way charlotte saw the world around her as france erupted in war charlotte herself with girondins for those of us who could use a refresher on the factions of the french revolution. The girondins were revolutionaries but they were more moderate faction. Among the different groups fighting for supremacy premacy girondins generally opposed the more extremists who believed everyone who opposed the revolution should be terrorized and struck down this. Yes you're on were particularly at odds with jackson's. The more hardcore group charlotte believed the jackson's antics outright violence threatened the moral fabric of the french nation. She felt so strongly about it that she set out to murder. One of the jacket leaders john palmera morale was was a prominent member of the radical group that led the reign of terror. Who's a journalist. She uses newspaper to sway public opinion. Sherlock held murrah responsible for many need. That's unbeliev discontinued. Ascension would mean the end of the republic on july ninth seventeen ninety three charlotte left her cousin's house where she was living at the time time and traveled to paris she bought a kitchen knife with a six inch blade and route which she called an address to the french people to explain her motives sherlock initially initially planned to kill meera in a very public setting in front of the national convention to make an example of him but turns out morale had a serious skin condition that had worsened to the point that he spent most of his time and took most of his meetings in his home bathtub so instead sherlock went directly to morass home pretending she had insider information formation about a plan doron uprising after being turned away once sherlock made it inside murrah was as usual polling in meetings from his bath charlotte gave him a list of names and then stabbed him single time in the chest seen has been memorialized in the famous and haunting painting and by jacques louis w sherlock was immediately seized and imprisoned during her child.

We're talking about villain essence today. Let's let's go back to nineteenth century massachusetts to meet the most famous suspected axe murderer in history hers was the trial of her decade are villainess of the day is lizzy. Lizzy was born in fall river massachusetts in eighteen sixty two andrew and sarah borden and tremendous fortune fortune mostly in textiles and property development and was well known in fall river for being frugal lizzie and her older sister emma were raised in a religious household old spent their younger years heavily involved in church activities. Liz's mother died when lizzie was just two years old and three years later her father married married a woman named abby gray lizzie and emma booth heeded their mother from the beginning they thought she'd married their father from his fortune and they may have felt threatened because unlike their frugal father seemed the two sisters had expensive tastes on the morning of august fourth eighteen ninety two andrew borden left for work as usual the only people left at home when lizzie her mother and they're made bridget andrew came home a few hours slater and laid down for a nap on the couch.

It appeared that he'd been struck in the head multiple times with a sharp object abby the hated stepmother was found dead that upstairs brutally mutilated the coroner determined that abby had died about an hour before her husband police quickly came to the conclusion asian that the murderers had to be an inside job but they were confused by the lack of blood at either seen except for on the bodies themselves. They also couldn't find anything anything. Resembling a murder weapon prosecutors later argued that the weapon had famously been an axe suspicion almost immediately turned toward lizzy see her sister had been out of town at the time of the murder and it was well known that lizzie had issues with her father and stepmother. Her alibi was also unconvincing. Mincing lizzie claimed to have no idea where her stepmother was after nine a._m. And then she claimed that while her father was being murdered she was in the barn looking for lead sinkers occurs for a fishing trip but when the police examined the barn there were no footprints on the dusty floor.

There is not one particle of direct evidence in this case from beginning wing to end against lizzie borden. There's not a spot of blood. There's not a weapon that they've connected with her. In any way shape or fashion robinson pinson who gave his own summation for the defense claimed that the crime could only have been committed by a maniac or the devil it certainly couldn't have been committed by a respectable lady. The jury deliberated for only an hour and a half before turning with its verdict not guilty today many speculate that the jury may have been more inclined blind convict had lizzy been a man most people in the late nineteenth century found it hard to believe that a woman of lucy's background pulled off such brutal killings how unladylike at said modern experts believe it's very likely but lizzie was guilty after the trial lizzie returned to fall river where she and her sister emma purchased a large home maple croft and lift a quiet existence lizzy was involved in the theater scene in town and mostly associated aided with what one might call bohemian types.
