The Nobel Prize is regarded as one of the most prestigious awards in fields such as chemistry, literature, peace, physics, and physiology or medicine. The first-ever Nobel Prize was awarded in 1901. Since then, more than 950 people and organizations have become Nobel Laureates. 

As of 2019, 53 women in total have been awarded the Nobel Prize, and only physicist and chemist Marie Curie has received it twice. This year, economist Esther Duflo became the youngest and the second woman ever to win the Nobel Prize in Economics. Duflo won the prize along with her husband, Abhijit Banerjee, and Michael Kremer for their work to alleviate global poverty.
