Women in Mathematics poster

Inspired by a poster on Notable Women in Computing, EWM-NL collected ideas for a poster on Women in Mathematics. The material was prepared in 2021 by a joint Dutch and UK team comprising Silvy Hendriks, Houry Melkonian, and Maria Vlasiou, who conceived the project. The poster was designed by Jana Kleinberg.

Limited by space, but not by the plethora of talented mathematicians to choose from, the poster gives an impression of women mathematicians from ancient times until now. As is evident by the 2022 Fields Medals, our poster is already running behind the facts. Yet, we hope that it is informative and engaging!

You can freely download, print, and distribute the poster. Help us translate it into different languages. To do so, please email Maria Vlasiou to see if we are looking for volunteers for your language and further instructions. Email us if you need a higher resolution file.
