"Words of women in mathematics in the time of Corona"

News vom 04.05.2021

Dear all,

We are happy to inform you that a video

"Words of women in mathematics in the time of Corona"


will soon be available for screening.

This is to encourage you to plan the screening of the film in your institution and possibly a related event.

This video collects words of some 86 women in mathematics from 37 countries telling us about their experience in the time of Corona in 25 different languages. The video will be launched on May 12th, date of the anniversary of Maryam Mirzakhani's birthday, which celebrates worldwide women in mathematics.
This project emanates from a group of mathematicians, Sonia Mahmoudi (Tohoku U., Japan), Claudia Malvenuto (U. di Roma La Sapienza, Italy), Sylvie Paycha (U. Potsdam, Germany) and Eriko Shinkawa (Tohoku U., Japan) after informal conversations about their experiences during the pandemic. This video is a follow up of the film "Faces of Women in Mathematics” (
https://vimeo.com/259039018) with whose authors, the mathematician Eugenie Hunsicker (U. of Loughborough, England) and the filmmaker Irina Linke, we have brought this new project to life.

If you do intend to plan a screening on May 12th, please fill in the following form mentioning the title, local time and location (including the country) of the event, as well as the necessary information related to the organizer(s).

We will get back to you if further details are needed. The video will also be available after that date so that you are welcome to screen it at a later date. Please do not hesitate to contact us:

Best wishes,
