The AMS has announced a new blog, Living Proof, “dedicated to stories of endurance and persistence in mathematics. This blog springs from the book Living Proof: Stories of Resilience Along the Mathematical Journey.” The blog’s inaugural post is by Danielle Amethyst (pictured here). It describes some of her experience as a mathematician and a trans woman.
