EWM Georgia 2011-2013
Reported by Nino Rokva
At Georgian universities the number of women mathematicians has been growing since 1990, when more young women decided to study mathematics.
The Batumi University has now 4 female mathematicians, as compared to only one previously. Among us, 2 are associate professors and 2 are assistant professors. Two of the three doctoral students are women.
The situation has changed also in other universities in Georgia. At Tbilisi State University, the number of female mathematicians reached 15 out of 60 mathematicians. At Kutaisi State University, the number of women mathematicians is 2 out of 19. At Telavi State University the number of women mathematicians is 4 out of 8. At the State University of Sukhumi there are 13 women out of 27 mathematicians.
Dynamics has improved over the last few years, and I hope in the future will increase the number of members of the EWM. We have decided that Georgian members of EWM pay directly to EWM. I plan to join the EWM meeting in Bonn.
