  1. No… KEVLAR was invented by a woman working for dupont for the use in tire manufacturing. The kevlar VEST was invented by this dude Matteo. WHICH IS WHAT THIS PICTURE DEPICTS.

  2. A lady (Stephanie Kwolek) created kevlar (the material used for bulletproof vests) in 1965, but it was this man (Richard Davis) who decided to use kevlar as body armor and therefore created the bulletproof vest.
