With this talk we present the advances of Nuclear Physics: the science that studies the properties of the atomic nuclei and their disintegration ways. Since the discovery of radioactivity  in the late nineteenth century, the research in Nuclear Physics has allowed, among other achievements, to understand the formation of the chemical elements inside the stars, to analysis and treat diseases such as cancer, and to use nuclear energy for human consumption. In addition, we will show trajectory of some of the women who have contributed significantly to the field of nuclear physics, making discoveries that are part of our daily life. ​
