(Black) Women’s History Month Challenge - Past/Present Common Links 6/31
Marie Van Brittan Brown + Janet Emerson Bashen
Common Link: Inventors with awarded patents
(Past) Marie Van Brittan Brown invented the closed-circuit television security system, which would birth the present-day home security market. The patent was granted in 1969.
(Present) Janet Emerson Bashen was awarded a patent for her software invention and became the first African-American woman to receive a patent for a web-based EEO software invention, LinkLine. LinkLine, is a web-based application for EEO claims intake and tracking, claims management, document management and numerous reports. Bashen will soon release AAPLink, a web-based software for building affirmative action plans.
During the month of March, I will take it upon myself to published daily women who made history and women who are making history. I won’t offer explanations unless the woman is less known, which then I will put links or attempt to explain why I link them.

no it matters that they actually casted an Egyptian person instead of some white actor like they usually do actual representation is pretty damn important
