2009 is the record year for female Nobel Prize winners.
And click HERE for a list of all the female Nobel Laureates in history. Only one woman, Marie Curie, has won twice. So far in history no women have won a Nobel prize for Economics, but that category was not created until 1969.
I have mixed thoughts on the nomination process....
