Nobel Prize in Economics in 2009: The Nobel Prize in Economics for 2009 was awarded jointly to Elinor Ostrom and Oliver E. Williamson of USA.
Elinor Ostrom was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize in economics. Ostrom showed how common resources like forests, fisheries, oil fields or grazing lands can be managed well by the people who use them, instead of governments or private companies.
Women were awarded Nobel prizes for 12 times in the field of peace and literature, followed by 10 Nobel prizes awarded to women for medicine. Female laureates were awarded four times in chemistry, and twice in physics. 2009 is considered as record year of Woman Nobel Laureates and shows the progress and contribution by woman across all the fields.
