Women in chemistry:
contribution to the education and science,
Chemistry Department of M.V.Lomonosov Moscow State University
June 16-17, 2011
of UNO has unanimously adopted the resolution in the support of the IUPAC
proposal to announce 2011 as International Year of Chemistry. It is believed
that the activity in the frames of this initiative will promote popularization
of the role of chemistry in the solving of the global problems of humanity, in
the formation stably developing society and it will simultaneously stir up the
activity of national chemical societies and educational organizations in this
direction. Besides 2011 is the year of centenary of Mary Sklodowskaya-Curie’s awarding
by the Nobel Prize. She was the first female Nobel Prize winner. International
recognition of this outstanding woman and scientist serves as a wonderful
example for the young people who have chosen chemistry as the basis for the
carrier, and makes it possible to commemorate the important contribution of
women in the development of chemistry as a science.
which had existed in education and science until XIX century inevitably leaded
to professional discrimination of women, made impossible for them to be
realized in many professions, including chemistry. But as early as the second
half of XIX century the break-through in the understanding of women role in the
global society was achieved. Especially in Russia women received possibility of
professional realization in chemical science and education through different
ways starting from 1870’s on. Thus in the Moscow University laboratory of Prof.
V.V. Markovnikov in 1870-80’s Yu.V.Lermontova and E.A.Fomina-Zhukovskaya were
working, later Z.V.Kikina, the disciple of M.I. Konovalov, who was her teacher
in the Highest Women Courses, started her professional activity in the same
lab. After the revolution of 1917 the equal rights for women and men in access
to education were announced in Russia. As a result already in 1920-s the share
of women in universities had become as much as 30% of the total students’
number and continued to grow up. Women received a possibility to teach in
universities and became members of administrative bodies of science and higher
first Russian conference devoted to women in chemistry and their contribution

Chemistry Department of M.V.Lomonosov Moscow State University June 16-17 2011.
The topics will
higher education in Russia and abroad (professors who were teaching
chemistry in the universities and on the Highest Women Courses; their
contribution into the professional growth of the first women-chemists,
organization of the women’s teaching and scientific work in higher educational
chemists in education and science (first women –members of scientific
societies in the field of chemistry and natural science; women - university
teachers, college teachers; women in scientific and industrial labs etc.)
Russian will be the official language of the conference; abstracts and
