Voici ce que j'ai trouvé (Here is What I Have Found) Sophie Germain's Grand Plan for Proving Fermat's Last Theorem

Sophie Germain (1776-1831) is the first woman known to have created important mathematical research. Although barred from universities, she managed to engage the world's top mathematicians,initially through male impersonation. Professor Pengelley’s recent discoveries in Germain's manuscripts reveal that she pursued an unknown grand plan to prove outright the famous claim of Pierre de Fermat, today known as Fermat's Last Theorem. Professor Pengelley will explore Germain's situation and her grand plan, and argue for a substantial elevation of her stature as a number theorist.
