Over a century later, little progress has been made reducing the gender gap in science. So far in the 2010s only 9% of winners have been female compared with 88% male (the rest were organisations). Throughout the history of the awards women have been most likely to win a Nobel Prize for Peace and Literature. There has only ever been 1 female winner for Economics and only 2 for Physics.
