WOMEN MATHEMATICIANS: EIGHT WOMEN'S EXPERIENCES

Mary Day
Department of Mathematics, Massey University, Palmerston North, New Zealand

Краткое описание

Unlike most of the research on gender and mathematics that focuses on women who are unsuccessful in mathematics, this paper focuses on women who were successful. It reports on a qualitative research project in which eight women mathematicians were interviewed about their experiences in mathematics. The discussion includes descriptions of how these individuals overcame the barriers that can exist to prevent women's full participation in mathematics and the diverse attractions mathematics has for these women. Aspects of the culture of mathematics that these women found difficult or at odds with their own values are discussed. The contradictory position of these women is highlighted in the descriptions of their involvement in women's groups. Finally, an overview of the diverse ways in which these women make sense of themselves and their experiences is given.
