There are just over 100 faculty in the department in 2017 so we are only 14%.  Many other excellent women mathematicians work at the various campuses around CUNY and are welcome to apply for doctoral appointments.   These faculty teach undergraduates at Staten Island, Brooklyn, Lehman, Baruch, City Tech, Queens and Hunter Colleges and were appointed to the CUNY doctoral faculty at various points in their careers.  For more information about women mathematicians at CUNY and around New York City see the New York Women in Mathematics Conference Webpage organized by Delaram Kahrobaei (CUNY GC Comp Sci) and Victoria Gitman.    

For more information about women in mathematics see the Association for Women in Mathematics and the list of Noether Lecturers.
