Historically, it is the Moscow State Pedagogical University that is the cradle of higher education for women in Russia. Once the Moscow Higher Women’s Courses, or the second Moscow State University, opened their doors to thousands of future women teachers and scientists, which left its unique imprint on the unity of the scientific and pedagogical traditions of Russia.
Among the students were future scientists with a worldwide reputation: the first woman to receive the degree of Doctor of Geological and Mineralogical Sciences – Vera Varsanofieva; the first Russian woman physicist to become world-famous in the scientific community was Alexandra Glagoleva-Arkadieva (in 1916, she invented the roentgenostereometer) and many others.
The discussion “Women in science: trends and prospects” was attended by the Master of MIPT, junior researcher of the LPI Kozhina Elizaveta.
During the three days of the Congress, about 3,100 participants and media members from 77 regions visited the site. In total, the site was visited by representatives of more than 280 higher educational institutions of Russia and more than 125 divisions of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
