This is THE original Woman In Math. The Big Math Momma. The Joan of Arcsines.
Born sometime between 350 and 371 AD in Alexandria, Egypt, Hypatia is the first notable woman in Western history to be known as a mathematician. Officially, she was Platonic scholar, the head of a school teaching peoples about Philosophy, Logic and Mathematics, for example.
She is thought to have to been a collaborator with her father (himself a famous mathematician) on most of her works. She published a well-read commentary on Diophantus’s Arithmatica, and another on Apollonius’s Conics.
However, she was widely believed to be the cause of strain between the Imperial Roman Prefect and the Patriarch Cyril, and because of that, attracted the hatred of the Christians of Alexandria, who wanted them to cease difficult relations. They jumped her on her way home, dragged her naked through the streets, and then killed her in the Caesareum Church, burning her remains after.
