#ChooseToChallenge – International Women’s Day 2021

This year’s International Women’s Day theme is #ChooseToChallenge.

A challenged world is an alert world. Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day. We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.

At Maths on Toast we choose to challenge by telling the stories of historic + contemporary female mathematicians. You can read some of our blogs celebrating the achievements of women who have overcome challenges to succeed in the mathematics world via the links below.
