The Women in Mathematics Society was started in 1993 with a meeting of 60 female mathematicians from the U.S. academic community. They had gathered data from 1987 through 1993 that showed that the NSA hired far more men with master's and Ph.D.s, but not nearly as many women. WiMS ran programs that encourage women to study mathematics in undergraduate and graduate levels, as well as K-12 summer camps, workshops for teachers, and tutoring programs.
