Mathematician Mirzakhani, Princess of Persia

It's a wonderful story.  It's an inspiring story:  Iran’s state-run newspapers break with the country’s strict rules and show the mathematician Maryam Mirzakhani the way she was, with her head uncovered, as the country mourns her death at the age of 40

Mirzakhani was the first and (so far) only woman to be awarded a Fields Medal.  That was three years ago
The world will always have her work, and these stories.
