Girl-Empowerment at it's best. This book empowers girls with real-life examples that nothing can hold them back from pursuing what they love and achieving their dreams. This based-on-true-stories children's book highlights the lives, struggles, as well as educational & professional achievements of all female Nobel laureates from America. Despite life's biggest challenges and with their sheer Grit to pursue what they love, they broke professional-educational ceilings along the way and became America's female Nobel laureates. Along the way, they literally changed America and the world. Each woman is featured in her own chapter with a colorful portrait (at the end of each chapter). A few storied examples from the book:””Her Dyslexia caused poor standardized test scores as a student. Yet, she won a Nobel Prize as an adult and became a Distinguished Professor at Johns Hopkins University.””As a child of first-generation immigrants and without a formal PhD, she became the 1st woman inducted into Inventors Hall of Fame and received a Nobel Prize.””She was rejected from entering a PhD program in Economics. Yet, she became the only woman in the world to win the Nobel Prize in Economics.””Her parents escaped racism of the south. She grew up in poverty of the Great Depression. She was the only African American student in her first-grade class. She won a Nobel Prize and is a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom.””As a young woman, she had to work two secretarial jobs to pay for college. Years later, she won a Nobel Prize in medicine.””As a child, her parents couldn't afford to raise her so they sent her to live with other family members. She grew up and became America's only woman to win an unshared Nobel Prize in Medicine.””She suffered through starvation-related hospitalizations of World War in Europe. As a first-generation immigrant to the U.S. and despite facing gender discriminatory attitudes of the time, she went on to become America's 1st woman to win a Nobel Prize in science.””She lost her mother at the age of 2. She lost four other siblings by the time she was 8. Her Tuberculosis of the spine forced her to walk with a limp. She became America's first-ever winner of a Nobel Prize and a co-founder of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

A MEMOIR BY THE YOUNGEST RECIPIENT OF THE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE "I come from a country that was created at midnight. When I almost died it was just after midday." When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in Pakistan, one girl spoke out. Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education. On Tuesday, October 9, 2012, when she was fifteen, she almost paid the ultimate price. She was shot in the head at point-blank range while riding the bus home from school, and few expected her to survive. Instead, Malala's miraculous recovery has taken her on an extraordinary journey from a remote valley in northern Pakistan to the halls of the United Nations in New York. At sixteen, she became a global symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest nominee ever for the Nobel Peace Prize. I AM MALALA is the remarkable tale of a family uprooted by global terrorism, of the fight for girls' education, of a father who, himself a school owner, championed and encouraged his daughter to write and attend school, and of brave parents who have a fierce love for their daughter in a society that prizes sons. I AM MALALA will make you believe in the power of one person's voice to inspire change in the world.

Four of its pioneers, who were also colourful personalities - Emil von Behring, Robert Koch, Paul Ehrlich and Elie Metchnikoff - were awarded the Nobel Prize. This volume tells the story of their contributions to science and how they were judged by their colleagues at the Karolinska Institutet, who had been charged with the responsibility of evaluating the candidates for the early medical Nobel Prizes.

Welcome to the 3 Books To Know series, our idea is to help readers learn about fascinating topics through three essential and relevant books. These carefully selected works can be fiction, non-fiction, historical documents or even biographies. We will always select for you three great works to instigate your mind, this time the topic is: Nobel Prize in Literature. - The Children of the World by Paul Heyse. - Kim by Rudyard Kipling. - Thais by Anatole France.Paul Heyse was a distinguished German writer and translator. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1910 "as a tribute to the consummate artistry, permeated with idealism, which he has demonstrated during his long productive career as a lyric poet, dramatist, novelist and writer of world-renowned short stories." Rudyard Kipling was an English journalist, short-story writer, poet, and novelist. Kipling in the late 19th and early 20th centuries was among the United Kingdom's most popular writers. Henry James said, "Kipling strikes me personally as the most complete man of genius, as distinct from fine intelligence, that I have ever known." In 1907, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, as the first English-language writer to receive the prize, and at 41, its youngest recipient to date. Anatole France was a French poet, journalist, and novelist with several best-sellers. Ironic and skeptical, he was considered in his day the ideal French man of letters. He was a member of the Académie française, and won the 1921 Nobel Prize in Literature "in recognition of his brilliant literary achievements, characterized as they are by a nobility of style, a profound human sympathy, grace, and a true Gallic temperament". This is one of many books in the series 3 Books To Know. If you liked this book, look for the other titles in the series, we are sure you will like some of the topics.

I Am Malala. This is my story. Malala Yousafzai was only ten years old when the Taliban took control of her region. They said music was a crime. They said women weren't allowed to go to the market. They said girls couldn't go to school. Raised in a once-peaceful area of Pakistan transformed by terrorism, Malala was taught to stand up for what she believes. So she fought for her right to be educated. And on October 9, 2012, she nearly lost her life for the cause: She was shot point-blank while riding the bus on her way home from school. No one expected her to survive. Now Malala is an international symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize winner. In this Young Readers Edition of her bestselling memoir, which has been reimagined specifically for a younger audience and includes exclusive photos and material, we hear firsthand the remarkable story of a girl who knew from a young age that she wanted to change the world -- and did. Malala's powerful story will open your eyes to another world and will make you believe in hope, truth, miracles and the possibility that one person -- one young person -- can inspire change in her community and beyond.

In the 116 year history of the Nobel Prize in Physics, only two women have won the award; Marie Curie (1903) and Maria Mayer (1963). During the 60 years between those awards, several women did work of similar calibre. This book focuses on those women, providing biographies for each that discuss both how they made their discoveries and the gender-specific reception of those discoveries. It also discusses the Nobel process and how society and the scientific community's treatment of them were influenced by their gender.
