As the first woman elected to the Academy of Medicine in France, Marie Curie visits American President Warren Harding in his garden, in October 1921. American women honour Mrs. Curie with a gift of one gram of radium, worth half a million Swedish kronor.
Their work and discoveries range from the Earth’s climate and our sense of touch to efforts to safeguard freedom of expression.
