Welcome to the Women in Number Theory Community!

This site is dedicated to the 'Women in Numbers' community, inspired by the WIN workshops occurring regularly since 2008.  We aim to be a resource both to female number theorists -- as a clearinghouse of information and opportunities relevant to women in numbers -- but also to the number theory community as a whole, by showcasing the many contributions of female number theorists to the discipline.  You'll find past and future WIN workshops, an up-to-date list of female number theorists, and a record of WIN research activities.  We also invite you to stay in touch via Twitter (@WINnumbertheory) or our email list.




Wonderful news! The Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) has been awarded an ADVANCE grant in the amount $750,000 from the National Science Foundation to support the project Career Advancement for Women Through Research-Focused Networks.

RECENT NEWS: New International Women in Mathematics Website


In March 2013 the Executive Committee of the International Mathematical Union (IMU) approved the establishment of an Advisory Group for Women in Mathematics, charged with creating and overseeing a section of the IMU website entitled Women in Mathematics (WiM). Opportunities for women vary widely from country to country and a main aim is to enhance the participation of women in all mathematical communities. The new WiM site can be found at the address


and was launched on August 12th at the (first ever) International Congress of Women Mathematicians (see https://sites.google.com/site/icwm2014/home), just prior to the International Congress of Mathematicians (http://www.icm2014.org), in Seoul, South Korea.
