Marie Curie is considered to be one of the most brilliant minds of the 20th century, and is a reference for all women scientists. Thanks to her pioneering work in the field of radioactivity, she became the first and so far only woman to receive two Nobel Prizes in different fields (physics and chemistry).

Curie was also the first woman to hold a professorship at the University of Paris. However, this Polish scientist, who later became a naturalised French citizen, had to fight against strict social rules (in early 20th century Warsaw, for example, women were not allowed to attend university), as well as her own precarious domestic situation in her hometown.

Curie, whose maiden name was Skłodowska, married Pierre Curie, with whom she had two daughters, and also spent much of her scientific career. With him, and thanks to his insistence on her merit in research, she won her first Nobel Prize in 1903. It is therefore not surprising that a research programme is named after this scientist.



Marie Curie had an impact, not only in the scientific sphere, but also in the social and cultural sphere. Although she herself was not affiliated with feminism, the movement holds her as an emblem for overcoming the obstacles imposed on women not only as a researcher but also on a personal level. This was especially noticeable in the wake of her husband’s death, and her relationship with Paul Langevin, another scientist who was Pierre’s pupil.

According to Professor Leslie Pearce Williams of Cornell University, her work with reactivity “forced a rethinking of the fundamentals of physics”. Likewise, “at the experimental level,” the discovery contributed to others such as the atom, radiology, etc.


Curie is also remembered for her work during the First World War. Not only was she one of the first women to receive a driving licence, but she also invented mobile radiography to examine more than a million wounded soldiers. Curie also founded France’s military radiology centre, where she was able to train more than 150 women in the operation of X-ray equipment.



The programme, actually called Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA), is responsible for helping to equip doctoral and post-doctoral researchers with the necessary tools. This is in line with Curie, as she and her husband donated their earnings to students and researchers.

The programme has different strands: postdoctoral fellowships, regional programmes, promotion of research among European citizens, research funding, and doctoral networks. You can apply as an organisation or individually xnxx.

These types of programmes have been made possible by people like Marie Curie who have understood the importance of scientific research. It is certainly one of the best ways to honour her legacy as a researcher, a pioneer and, above all, an altruistic person.

A call for African women worldwide

My name is Valerie Aoulou. This site is in memory of both my mother and sister: Marie Antoinette & Danielle Aoulou. This is also an attempt to carry on a part of my mum job which was to encourage the development of women through a television programme. I was born in 1977 and come from the Ivory Coast, very peaceful and fourishing country in west Africa up to 2001 where a military coup and unstability changed everything. I am currently living in the UK and have decided to create this site following my personal lost. Somehow, I felt It was time to put my ideas in practice.

This site draws portraits for both my late mother and sister. It is also an awakening call for African and all Women worldwide to connect through their keyboard and interact to find out more about themselves in society today and all the basic things that are still denied to some of us: Education, Respect, right to choose, freedom of speech, etc
This was started by my mother in her job as a journalist and reporter for the development of women and by the way my sister lived her life.
I am aiming to hve a list of members thorugh this website and the ability to influence decision about women conditions worldwide by signing nd sending petitions to relevant bodies.

“In Memory of You Maman”
I hate the way I am feeling right now
I am so empty and low
My head is filled up with memories
I want to scream but my voice is gone
I just want to see her again

No I do not want to cry cry
All I want you to know is that I LOVE YOU SO MUCH

As usual it is too late
You loved me though I gave you grief
I could never say how grateful I am
Worst never to show you how much you counted

The best gift is priceless
My children will know you as I did
You will always dwell in us

“In memory of You Danielle”

Your light went off four years ago
You were my big sister
We had our good times and our bad times
You never ever failed to love me though
How near or far you always cared
Nothing in what you were or did will ever shame me
My heart bled the day you left
I was already so faraway from you
Your sudden departure did not shorten the distance
I know I will see you again
I need to become an angel though first
Cause that is exactly what you are now
I love you and I miss you porno
