women in mathematics

We're celebrating the occasion with some favourite talks by female mathematicians of the last year.

Ada Lovelace, born 200 years ago this month, is hailed the world's first computer programmer. What exactly was her contribution to computer science?

We celebrate the 200th birthday of Ada Lovelace, who anticipated modern computers long before they were built, with a look at her life and work.

Present and future mathematicians celebrating women from across the mathematical sciences.

We are thrilled that brilliant mathematician Maryam Mirzakhani has been awarded a Fields medal – the first woman to be recognised.

Today is Ada Lovelace Day celebrating the work of women in mathematics, science, technology and engineering. Since Plus is run entirely by women, we're very happy to join in! We've got plenty of articles and podcast by or about women mathematicians, so we've put together a selection of favourites.

A talent search has just begun to find competitors to represent the UK in the first ever European Girls' Mathematical Olympiad (EGMO). But why should a girls-only competition be held and what do we hope to achieve?

To coincide with the 100th International Women's Day two new competitions to find the best young female mathematical minds in the UK and Europe have been launched.
