As the International Statistical Institute's celebration of the International Year of Women in Statistics and Data Science continues, International Statistical Review has compiled a brief historical introduction to nine women who were trailblazers in the statistical sciences.

This article presents the women as outstanding contributors to the profession, in a climate at the time dominated by men. They all blazed the way despite the considerable odds against them, and have been mentors and inspirations to generations of women practitioners who worked with them and who followed in their footsteps.
