Reading Nobel Women Recommendations

New Nobel Women

This year we have 3 new Nobel Women! Our new Nobel Laureates are:

Unfortunately, only one has a memoir or biography, which I just read and will post a review of on Monday. Her story is heartbreaking, as all the memoirs of Nobel Peace Prize winners have been so far in my reading. She has been through hell and back and is working hard to make sure her experience doesn’t happen to others. Here is a link to Nadia’s Initiative which goes into the status of Sinjar and her continuing efforts for justice.

I’ve been working for a few years on reading books by or about the Nobel Women and here are reviews of these I’ve read already:

Not all people who have won a Nobel have books by or about them, but the Peace Prize winners do usually have a memoir and the Literature Prize winners have obviously published something. The science and economics winners are harder to come by but not impossible. There’s one in this list already and a few others that I’ve found books on, most notably Marie Curie has several biographies written about her.

Hopefully, we continue to have new Nobel Women every year. There is also the Nobel Women’s Initiative where former winners come together and support each other and new activists around the world. Check it out.
