Women’s History Month Challenge, Day 30: Marie Curie
Marie Curie (1867-1934) was one of the recipients of the 1903 Nobel Prize in Physics and the 1911 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.  She was born in Warsaw where she was a member of a radical student organization before attending the Sorbonne in Paris to study math and physics.  She received her Doctor of Science degree in 1903 before becoming the first female physics professor at the Sorbonne.  Curie discovered methods of separating radium from radioactive residues, which allowed it to be studied.  She promoted the use of radium as means to ease suffering.  Besides her Nobel Prizes, Curie also received the Davy Medal and worked on the Committee of Intellectual Cooperation at the League of Nations.
