On #IWD2019, one of our #ARUAlumni, Cherie Beckett pays tribute to Marie Curie as a strong role model for women and scientists alike. "To me, she demonstrated such strong will and determination to progress as a scientist in what was a heavily male dominated profession, with times of struggle and financial hardship. Despite this, she remained honest, modest and true to herself, making scientific discoveries of radiation in #medicine that have undoubtedly saved millions of lives, but that ultimately led her to her death. As a #scientist myself, I only hope that I can progress in my career on the merit of the same hard work but work free from the struggles of gender discrimination, honouring the memory and legacy of Marie Curie." #BalanceForBetter
