Women Nobel Peace Prize Winners free pdf From the first woman Nobel Peace Prize recipient, Bertha von Suttner (1905), to the latest and youngest female Nobel laureate, Malala Yousafzai (2014), this book in its second edition provides a detailed look at the lives and accomplishments of each of these 16 Prize winners. They did not expect recognition or fame for their work - economist Emily Greene Balch (1946) was surprised to learn that anybody knew about her. But they did not work in isolation: all met with discouragement, derision, threats or - in Yousafazi's case - attempted murder and exile. A history of the Prize and a biographical sketch of Alfred Nobel are included.
