Iranian Woman Becomes First Female To Win Prestigious Mathematics Award

Openhearted Rebel

By Jess Murray, Truth Theory

An Iranian woman becomes the first ever female to win the Fields Medal from the International Mathematical Union. The medal has been awarded to the rightful winner every four years for the past 80 years since it began, and each and every time the award has been given to a man. But that all changed in 2014, when Maryam Mirzakhani won the award.

Mirzakhani is a professor at Stanford University and was presented the award for her “outstanding contributions to the dynamics and geometry of Riemann surfaces and their moduli spaces.” After being the first female recipient she told the Stanford Report, “It is fun – it’s like solving a puzzle or connecting the dots in a detective case. I felt that this was something I could do, and I wanted to pursue this path.”
