Who invented the windshield wiper?

Mary Anderson

Famous women inventors had many opportunities to shine with the invention of the automobile. One of those was Mary Anderson who invented a swinging arm-like device with a rubber blade that could be operated from the inside of the car to clean the windshield. Her invention was the first windshield wiper. By 1916, thirteen years after she received her patent, just about all new American cars were equipped with windshield wipers.
