May12: My mathematical heroine

12th May is the "women in math day" in honor of Maryam Mirzakhani's birthday, an Iranian mathematician who in 2014 became the first and so far only woman to be awarded the Fields Medal. On that occasion, our professors Folkmar Bornemann, Marco Cicalese, Jürgen Richter-Gebert, and Elisabeth Ullmann will tell us about their personal mathematical heroines – female mathematicians who inspire them, influenced them, or whom they admire.

We offer a public screening of the Film "Picture a scientist" between May 12 and May 14. The week afterwards, on Monday 17th , 7 p.m. we offer a common and free Zoom discussion about the film and the underlying topic, the gender gap particularly in mathematics, grievances, negative or positive personal experiences but also chances that come along with gender equality and more diversity.
