Association for Women in Mathematics

The mission of the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) is "to encourage women and girls to study and to have active careers in the mathematical sciences, and to promote equal opportunity and the equal treatment of women and girls in the mathematical sciences." Visitors will find links to selected back issues of the AWM newsletter, abstracts of lectures, awards and award-winning essays, and further online resources for educators, students, and professionals. There are also a number of biographies of individual women who have made lasting impacts on the sciences and in mathematics. This is an excellent site for educators and administrators who seek to encourage the participation of women and girls in math and science.
