And then there were five

Women Nobel Prize winners, that is.

The latest woman to win the  prize is the economist, Elinor Ostrom.  Others:

Literature:  Herta Müller

Chemistry:  Ada Yonath

Medicine:  Elizabeth H. Blackburn  and Carol W. Greider

It will be interesting to see how long it takes for philosophers in general to realize that fields unreceptive to women are losing important human capital.  In addition, that is, to making it harder for women to function.
