WIG photo This page contains links and information about upcoming conferences, workshops and programs about and for women in mathematics. There is both a page and downloadable Excel file on current Research Experience for Undergraduate programs. There is a newly created section on Research Collaboration Conferences & Networks for Women in Math. Click on the Women in Geometry photo to go to the page.

Opportunities logo This page contains links to informational sites on grant, fellowship, scholarship, and career opportunities for women in mathematics. A short description of each opportunity is included. Click on the NSF logo to go to the page.


Emmy Noether This page is an extensive collection of biographies of women mathematical scientists. Biographies have been combined from many websites. An icon associated to the site of origin for each sketch follows the name of the featured mathematician. Click on the photo of Emmy Noether to go to the page.


AWM logo This page starts with a section of links to websites on associations, societies, and organizations for or of interest to women in mathematics. It concludes with a section of miscellaneous links to other sites of interest to students and academics in mathematics and short descriptions of what is available at those sites. Click on the AWM logo to go to the page.


Women's Wages This page contains a bibliography of publications about gender & math, feminist theories of science, selected publications on gender & science, and other related topics. The page is divided into 13 separate subpages, including a page on Gender Studies in Mathematics and Other Sciences conducted by Prof. Vitulli and others. Copies of the studies on Gender Differences in First Jobs for US Mathematics PhDs can be found on the Gender Studies page, including a new comprehensive study for the years 1991-2015. A Search engine is provided. Click on the bar graph to go to the pages.

Quote for Today

"Mathematics is not about numbers, equations, computations, or algorithms: it is about UNDERSTANDING."

- William Paul Thurston

About Our Project

The Women in Math Project was created in 1997 by Marie A. Vitulli, a Professor of Mathematics at the University of Oregon. She served on the Executive Committee of the AWM and was chosen as the 2014 Falconer Lecturer at MathFest. In 2017 she was awarded an AWM Service Award. She is the co-author (with Mary E. Flahive) of a pair of studies on first jobs for women PhDs in mathematics. This site provides comprehensive resources and information for and about women in math. The site was chosen as Site of the Day by New Scientist Planet Science and as one of the Digital Dozen sites by the Eisenhower National Clearinghouse for Mathematics and Science Education. We hope you find these pages useful.

In the News

The Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) was awarded a $750,000 NSF ADVANCE Grant entitled Career Advancement for Women through Research-Focused Networks to establish research networks for women by fostering research collaborations at conferences and AWM Workshops. The grant website contains pages on the various Research Collaboration Networks that have been created or supported as well as information on past and upcoming conferences.
