The history of women in mathematics in the U.S. started more than 130 years ago. Former Members in the School of Mathematics and current and former program managers of IAS's Women and Mathematics Program Margaret A. Readdy and Christine Taylor honor this long history with profiles of the first graduating class of women mathematicians from Princeton and twenty-seven contemporary women in math for Notices of the American Mathematical Society's Women’s History Month.
Among those profiled are IAS affiliates Dorothy L. Bernstein, Joan Birman, Maria Chudnovsky, Ingrid Daubechies, Tara Holm, Olga Holtz, Dusa McDuff, Maryam Mirzakhani, Sophie Morel, Andrea Nahmod, Lillian B. Pierce, Gigliola Staffilani, Karen Uhlenbeck, Olga Taussky-Todd, and Lauren Williams.
