Women Who Shaped Women’s History – Marie Curie

Marie Curie
Marie Curie, the mother of modern science is part our series on women we admire. 

Marie Curie was a Polish physicist and chemist, who is famous for her pioneering research on radioactivity, a term she coined herself.  Marie Curie was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, the only woman to win in two fields in Physics and Chemistry, and the only person to win in multiple sciences. She was also the first female professor at the famed University of Paris (La Sorbonne), and in 1995 became the first woman to be entombed on her own merits in Paris' Panthéon.
