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 make up a significant collection of notable figures 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 improving the situation and recognition of distinguished female mathematicians.

The MacTutor History of Mathematics archive maintains an active index of female mathematicians, included at the end of the article.
