Women have had many difficulties throughout history to carry out their work in the world of science and, in particular, in the world of Mathematics. With the integration of women in the workplace it seems that these differences have diminished, although the presence of women in the academic and scientific categories of responsibility seems to be low. A study on this problem in the area of Mathematics could approach the origins of some problems that women face today in the development of their professional qualification.
Motivated by all this, the Royal Spanish Mathematical Society has constituted the Commission «Women and Mathematics» which aims to address, together with the group of mathematical women of our country, various studies related to the current situation of mathematical women in Spain in the field of education and research.
This Commission is open to all those mathematicians interested in participating and making contributions on these topics.
