Design Information

Sofya Kovalevsky, 1850 – 1891,

She was born into a Russian nobility family, was home tutored, and displayed early talent and enthusiasm for mathematics.

Because of her gender she was not permitted to attend the university in Moscow, so she decided to move to Germany. But women were not permitted to travel alone, they were required to be accompanied by a male, husband or father. After a marriage of convenience she finally arrived in Germany. Unfortunately, the situation across the border was not much better.

The university at Heidelberg would not permit her to enroll because “university was no place for a young woman”, but she was allowed to attend classes in mathematics and physics. She was also offered a position teaching arithmetic at an elementary girls school!

During this time Sofya wrote 3 important and impressive scientific papers, and was granted a PhD by the university of Gottingen. After the publication of more papers she was appointed to a professorial position in Stockholm, and was the first woman in Stockholm and in northern Europe to be granted a professorial position.

Sofia Kovalevsky was very determined and exceptionally talented. Her major contributions were in partial differential equations, elliptical integrals and planetary motion, and wrote 10 scientific papers on mathematics and theoretical physics.

Sofya Kovalevsky died young, just 41 years, after having battled gender prejudice most of her life.

Wear it with pride, wear it for justice, and wear it for Sofya Kovalevsky's basic human rights.
