It's International Women's Day and I'm preparing for tomorrow's seminar
on formalism; these two things together led me to a question which if
anyone can answer, it's the collective knowledge of FOM:

In the late 19th/early 20th C foundational tradition of Cantor-Dedekind-
Frege-Russell-Hilbert, etc., were there any female contributors?  I
know that post-Godel there are certainly people writing on foundations/
philosophy of math, but I'm interested in people who were actually
working at the time foundational questions were being formulated as
well as being answered.
