We will celebrate the International Day of Women (March 8th) by talking about the life, work and achievements of a few historic female mathematicians (during times when women were denied access to higher education), including Hypatia of Alexandria, Elena Cornaro Piscopia, Maria Agnesi, Sophie Germain, Mary Fairfax Sommerville, Ada Lovelace, Charlotte Angas Scott, Sofia Kovalevskaya, Alicia Boole Stott, Emmy Noether, and Marjorie Lee Browne.

Megan Kuneli and Katie Urabe are Fresno State Tensor Women Scholars supported by an MAA Tensor Women and Mathematics Grant that focuses on women studying mathematics.
