Explore the hardships that nearly prevented Marie Curie from making it into the laboratory: a rampant epidemic, a suppressive government’s murder, her father's investment gone bad, the other marriage proposal, and studying in France when it was said, “Woman is not a brain, she is a sex… Some women, rare exceptions, have been able to give… the illusion that they are creative. But they are either abnormal or simply reflections of men."
