For the first time in 55 years, a woman has won the 2018 Nobel Prize for Physics.

Canadian Physicist, Donna Strickland, is only the third woman in history to win the award. Other women who have clinched the coveted prize include Marie Curie, who won in 1903, and Maria Goeppert-Mayer, who was awarded the prize in 1963.

Dr Strickland shares this year’s prize with Arthur Ashkin, from the US, and Gerard Mourou, from France.

She said on a phone call to the press conference: “We need to celebrate women physicists because we’re out there, and hopefully in time it’ll start to move forward at a faster rate. I’m honoured to be one of those women”.
