Significant contributions by women (but I won't do a complete stranger's homework)

I received this comment on the blog today:

what are some of the most significant contributions that women have made in technology over the years? when you get this can you right me back because i'm in the computer fair and i will really like to knopw some answers from you

The main thing all the women inventors had in common, though was... they worked hard. And I hope that this requester will do the same so she can go on to make her own contributions to the world.
