International Day of Girls and Women in Science

12th February 19

 

 

Yesterday the International Day of Girls and Women in Science was celebrated and we wanted to take part by hiighlighting some oustanding pieces of work by girls in science subjects.

This day has been celebrated since on 22nd December 2015 the United Nations passed a resolution which justified it´s taking place, commending in this way the initiatives carried out to support scientific women and promote the access of girls and women to learning, skills and research in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, as well as their participation in these activities at all levels.

Entrance and participation in equal conditions in science, technology and innovation for women and girls of all ages are vital for achieving gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls.
