The article focuses on the number of women authors who have contributed to articles published in a previous issue of the journal. This issue is the first where there are no women authors. Many issues before and since it have numerous women authors. It is the policy of the journal to encourage participation by mathematicians of whatever sex, whatever nations, and whatever background. The journal tries to spread awareness of their achievements and provides a forum for discussion of ways to remove the barriers to their full participation in the profession.
