The right answer is 2011

In 2011 three women were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize: Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Leymah Gbowee and Tawakkol Karman “for their non-violent struggle for the safety of women and for women’s rights to full participation in peace-building work.” That also happened in 2009, when Elizabeth Blackburn and Carol Greider were awarded the Medicine Prize and Herta Müller received the Literature Prize. In 2016, no women were awarded.
