This is a list of notable female mathematicians. Many have made significant contributions to mathematics.

Many of the best known mathematicians are male, although more women have entered mathematics since World War II. Women are still a small minority of notables in mathematics and neighboring branches of science such as physics. A number of prizes instituted by the AMS and other mathematical societies are aimed at changing this situation.
