In 2014, 28% of all mathematics theses were defended by women graduates, while only 20.9% of all research positions in the CNRS (Junior or Senior scientists) and in universities (as Lecturers or Professors) are held by women.

To meet this challenge, an action plan for professional equality between women and men is being carried out by the Mission pour la place des femmes du CNRS and the national association femmes & maths for women in mathematics is very active. This association works with the international associations European Women in Mathematics and the Committee for Women in Mathematics.
