The first woman to win a Nobel Peace Prize was Marie Currie in 1903, 2 years after the awards started. Check out the slide show of all of the winners below.
So far, 48 women have won an award but 49 have been handed out to women. How is that possible?
Marie Currie won twice! Once in 1903, for her work on radiation with her husband, and her 2nd award came in 1911 when she produced radium as a pure metal.
