Who was the first woman to win the Nobel Prize?

Answer:

MARIE CURIE

The Nobel Prize has been awarded to women 54 times between 1901 and 2019. The first woman to win a Nobel Prize was Marie Curie, who won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1903 with her husband, Pierre Curie, and Henri Becquerel. Curie is also the only woman to have won multiple Nobel Prizes; in 1911, she received a second Nobel Prize, this time in Chemistry, in recognition of her work in radioactivity. Curie's daughter, Irène Joliot-Curie, won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1935, making the two the only mother-daughter pair to have won Nobel Prizes.
