Did you know that Kevlar - the material used in bulletproof vests, was invented by Stephanie Kwolek - a scientist at DuPont?

She was an amazing scientist and is still the only woman to have been awarded the DuPont Lavoisier Medal.

Her discovery has saved many lives, and she deserves to be remembered for it.

I saw this yesterday. An amazing discovery and, yes, Ms. Kwolek does need to be remembered for it.
