Her most significant contribution was her co-invention with George Antheil: A Secret Communication System. 

This system paved the way for today's wireless communications - WiFi- and was deemed so vital to national defense that government wanted to keep it secret! 

In 1997, Lamarr and Antheil received the Electronic Frontier Foundation Pioneer Award and the Bulbie Gnass Spirit of Achievement Bronze Award, given to individuals whose creative lifetime achievements in the arts, sciences, business, or invention fields have significantly contributed to society.

Lamarr was featured on the Science Channel and the Discovery Channel. In 2014, Lamarr and Antheil were posthumously inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame.

This Women in STEM Tribute Dress features prints of Hedy's actual patent figures from 1941.

    Beauty and Brains!

    I wanted to wear the Hedy Lamarr dress to wear to a holiday party I was hosting for work. I feel like Hedy Lamarr emulates what the Shenova brand is about, promoting women in STEM and that woman can be feminine, beautiful, and intellectual. Since the party is during a time a year when it's a little on the chilly side, I ordered a custom fitted dress with longer sleeves. There was a little hiccup in production, but Holly communicated this early, and I still received my dress in time for the party. I absolutely admire and respect the transparency and professionalism! I also like that she uses zero waste, 3D printing technology to print her designs, which is pretty neat! The night I wore the dress, with all the running around, drinking and dancing, it almost felt like the material of the dress kept me cool. I am very impressed with this dress and the dress received a lot of compliments from my colleagues. I definitely recommend Shenova apparel and intend on buying other designs in the future. Thank you so much, Holly and team for such an awesome purchasing experience and product!

    Perfect graduation present

    I got this dress as a graduation present and I LOVE it. To get the measurements right, I ordered it myself and Holly was extremely helpful: it fits perfectly. I always wanted one of the STEM dresses as I think they are fantastic and I'm sure I will buy another one!
