25 ES­THER DU­FLO

InStyle (USA) - - Badass Women -

The Paris-born MIT pro­fes­sor, who won a No­bel Prize in eco­nom­ics for her “ex­per­i­men­tal ap­proach to al­le­vi­at­ing global poverty,” is the youngest per­son and sec­ond woman to re­ceive the honor. In her No­bel Ban­quet speech she said, “I can­not help but hope that this prize, with its em­pha­sis on the es­sen­tial ques­tion of how to im­prove the lives of oth­ers, and with one woman among the lau­re­ates, will en­cour­age many oth­ers to come join us.”
