Marie A. Vitulli

This page contains pages of bibliographic references to articles of interest to women in STEM, in general, and women in mathematics, in particular. Many of the references should be of interest to the broader audience of all women in academia. Abstracts are included for many of the articles. The section on Gender Studies in Mathematics and Other Sciences contains links to articles by Women in Math Project Director Marie A. Vitulli and others. Click on the purple link to visit that page.

    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 is contains pages on the various Research Collaboration Networks that have been created or supported as well as information on past and upcoming conferences.
