The story of the Mathematicians​

I don’t know your experience in high school, but I remember most of my math teachers were women.  Maybe I took it for granted they were only school teachers, but did you know how much the subject of math owes to women?  In case you didn’t realize- here are just a few women to note-  Dorothy Johnson Vaughn, Julia Robinson, Marjorie Lee Browne, and Christine Darden whose names should not be lost in antiquity.



The movie, Hidden Figures, only touches on the contributions of the women scientists in NASA alone, and it still doesn’t do the women it is chronicling justice for what they really deserve.

Genius does not know gender.  Read more about these lady mathematicians of history here and let their stories stir your own passions for solving world problems, in math, science, or just simply in your hometown.
