I was so excited and inspired when I had heard that Maryam Mirzakhani won the fields medal this year. Immediately, I wanted to know more about her research. As I started to type her name into Google, the first suggested search was

“Maryam Mirzakhani husband”

Seriously?! A woman wins the top prize in mathematics and the first thing people want to know is who is her husband?!

  1. I am similarly inspired by Maryam Mirzakhani, and when I saw I Fucking Love Science (a facebook group) had posted a story about her, I was so happy. Then I started looking at the comments, and the first one, the FIRST one, said “Oh wow, and she’s pretty too”.

    Unreal.
