Woman and whiteboard

Are you (thinking about) studying mathematics or have a background related to natural sciences? Do you struggle at times in this male-dominated area? Do you sometimes doubt that you are good enough, clever enough and courageous enough to achieve what others seem to easily achieve in their careers?

Then a new website, which launches today, is here to help. Her maths story offers encouragement and support by sharing stories of women in mathematics. The aim is to provide a platform that is informative, non-judgemental, honest, motivating and enjoyable, and that showcases the endless possibilities of maths.
