Bourbaki was founded around 1934, they have a limit age of fifty and many mathematicians have passed through it. According to an interview with Chevalley no women have belonged to the group up to 1985. Due to the importance of the group in the history of mathematics, I wonder if this is the case even to this day.

There is evidence that there were women in Bourbaki? Maybe Claire Voisin?

  • $\begingroup$ Wikipedia indicates there are no known women who have been members. $\endgroup$
