Women's (mathematicians') Day!

'I am in my own right a whole person, responsible to myself alone for all that I am, all that I say, all that I do. When I add the sum total of my graces, I confess I am inferior to no one."
Declared in the 18th century by  Marquise Emile du Chatelet, one of the few mathematicians prior to women's liberation. With her you can see Lord Byron's daughter, Ada Lovelace, the Russian Sophia Kavolevsky, and the ancient Greek Hypatia of Alexandria.
Happy Women's Day to our AToM females!
