Recently (10/10/2020), NPR had an interview with former teachers of Louisville shooting victim Breonna Taylor -- an interview that celebrated her love of and talent for mathematics. Read about it here. I write to applaud this celebration AND to encourage increased recognition of math-women while they are alive.
A wonderful way to celebrate math-women is the annual essay contest sponsored by the Association for Women in Mathematics -- open to students from middle school to college; contest information is available here. Interviews may be conducted now; essay submission begins December 1.
