The Stories Behind International Women’s Day

March 3rd, 2020 by

Fletcher Jones Motorcars of Fremont drives into International Women’s Day with the story of Mary Anderson and her “Window Cleaning Device.” During a visit to New York City, Mary had settled into a streetcar as a way to enjoy the glamour of New York, but her mind was not focused on New York – it was on what was right ahead. She intently watched as the driver struggled to see clearly through the windshield as there was no proper or efficient way to clean the snow or rain off. Anderson would then begin working on designing the “Window Cleaning Device,” which was an early version of windshield wipers. She patented her invention in 1903, but unfortunately, the patent expired before the automotive folks were more supportive of her idea.
