The initiative to celebrate "Women in Mathematics" was proposed by the Women's Committee of the Iranian Mathematical Society and voted by a vast
majority of attendees of the (WM)² last July in Rio. The date May 12 was chosen because it is the birthdate of Maryam Mirzakhani - the first woman to win the Fields Medal. The initiative is supported by several organizations for women in mathematics worldwide (European Women in Mathematics, Association for Women in Mathematics, African Women in Mathematics Association, Indian Women and Mathematics, Colectivo de Mujeres Matemáticas de Chile and the Women's Committee of the Iranian Mathematical Society).
To join the celebration, De La Salle University Mathematics & Statistics Department will be organizing and setting-up an exhibit at the Learning Commons from May 9 to 15. In the exhibit, films about the journeys of women in mathematics will be played.
