Black “Girl” History Month

Hello friends,

I hope you all ate having a great weekend! The ladies of the day for Days 15 & 16 of our Black “Girl” History Month are Mary and Mildred Davidson.

These sisters are responsible for the sanitary pad used today by women everywhere. In 1956, these ladies invented the sanitary belt. Until then, women would use towels or clothe pads. Later in 1959, Mary created a moisture resistant pad to be inserted into the belt. The sisters also invented the toilet paper holder we use today! Mary went on to invent many more household-use items.

Friends, let’s give it up for these ladies. We women can all appreciate their inventions.
