In Nobel Times: A Woman’s Story

with one comment

Today for the first time, the Nobel Committee awarded the 2009 Nobel Prize in economic science to a woman.  Elinor Ostrom of Indiana University and Oliver Williamson of UC Berkeley accepted the award for “… their separate work on economic governance, organization, cooperation, relationships and nonmarket institutions.”  Not only is Ms. Ostrom the first woman to win the Nobel in economics but she is also the 5th woman to win a Nobel this year, a record.  Her story on NPR is a reminder of how far women’s rights have advanced.

  1. I agree that women have come a long ways. Wonderful to know that their achievements are now being recognized. I would not be surprised to see a woman president in the next election year. It is possible now.
