Marie Curie


Anthony Bennett
Marie Curie was the first woman to ever win a Nobel prize and was also the first person  to win two 
Nobel Prizes. She is the only person ever to Nobel Prize in two scientific fields. She discovered the 
elements radium and polonium and contributed to finding cures for cancer. She changed our whole 
perspective on how to use radiation and developed our medical field to basically what it is today. If it 
wasn’t for her we wouldn’t be able to use X-ray machines and Radiation as we do today. If you have ever 
had an MRI or any scan on your body just know she helped us to get where we are today with these 
machines. She helped and saved so many people’s lives in the war with her advancement of 
radiation and the machines even helping the soldiers by using radiation to find the bullets and 
shrapnel in the bodies and even remove them. 
This was over 100 years ago and the fact she even won the Nobel Prize at that point in time is amazing 
to imagine having all the odds stacked against you just because you were a certain gender and overcoming 
those odds and during that process helping millions of people. She was born in 1867 in Poland and died 
in 1934 in France. She lived her life to the fullest and devoted herself to helping other people to survive 
and even today she helps every single one who has ever broken a bone or who has had any 
disease. Now that is a legacy almost hundreds of years after you die and something she invented is still 
being used is amazing and shows how advanced she really was!

Dress code

student opinion

By Ariana Torresdey

  Why can’t we wear crop tops? Who are we offending? What can we wear without being seen as objects? My intentions aren’t bad, yet my reason is being justified by the way we as (women) dress. How is that okay? The fact a man can wear a muscle shirt to school, but women can’t wear anything showing collarbone, shoulders, or skin in general. People view certain women’s clothes as expressional art, and that is our intention. We want to showcase our beauty through something we see as beautiful. We don’t want to be seen as an object or someone’s easy target. The dress code is extreme and makes us feel like we are less.

Do you believe in women’s rights?

By Ariana Torresdey

Women’s rights are the rights and entitlements claimed
for women and girls worldwide. They formed the basis
for the women’s rights movement in the 19th century
and, the feminist movements during the 20th and 21st
centuries. In some countries, these rights are
institutionalized or supported by law, local custom, and
behavior, whereas in others, they are commonly
associated with notions of women’s rights that include
bodily integrity, autonomy, sexual violence, voting,
family law, to work, equal pay, reproductive rights, own
property, and education.

On Monday (Nov 7, 2022) a New Mexico town called Hobbs, without exception they

abortion. “Whole Woman's Health” is one of the largest providers of abortions in the
United States, news agencies heard it was interest to have an opening clinic in Hobbs
or nearby Clovis.
