New women in maths group in Chile

Following the ICM 2014, and thanks to the encouragement of the ICWM, a new group of women mathematicians Colectivo de mujeres matemáticas has formed in Chile. It meets regularly to speak about the gender gap and the differences of opportunities faced by women in the region.

The group has delivered talks at several high schools, speaking about what being a mathematician is and also addressing the stereotype that mathematics is a men game. It has also participated in some university events speaking about the gender gap in math and science.

Besides the web page, the group also has a facebook group.
