International Day of Women & Girls in Science
Today marks International Day of Women & Girls in Science. Over recent years, strides have been made globally toward engaging and empowering women and girls in science. However, there is still a lot of work to be done.
In order to achieve full and equal access to and participation in science for women and girls, and further achieve gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls, the United Nations General Assembly declared 11 February as the International Day of Women and Girls in Science in 2015.
