Marie-Sophie Germain was the middle daughter of Ambroise-François, a prosperous silk-merchant, and Marie-Madelaine Gruguelin. Sophie's home was a meeting place for those interested in liberal reforms and she was exposed to political and philosophical discussions during her early years.
Sophie Germain was a revolutionary. She battled against the social prejudices of the era and a lack of formal training in order to become a celebrated mathematician. She is best known for her work in number theory, but her work in the theory of elasticity is also very important to mathematics.
