Toshiko Yuasa (1909-1980) Revered by women in STEM as the “Marie Curie of Japan,” Toshiko Yuasa was Japan’s first woman physicist. She studied in Paris where she worked with Frédéric Joliot-Curie on radioactivity, and later in Berlin developed her own beta-ray spectrometer. When forced to return to Japan in 1945, Yuasa carried the spectrometer home strapped to her back.
