Sant Pau joins the International Day of Women and Girls in Science
Tomorrow, February 11, is the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. This initiative promotes activities that, making visible the work of female scientists, commemorate this day, foster scientific vocations in girls and help close the gender gap in science. This fourth edition hosts more than 1,700 through February 15.
In 2015, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 11 February as International Women’s and Girl’s Day in Science. The goal is to achieve full and equitable access and participation in science for women and girls, as well as the achievement of gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls.
This platform was created by a group of women scientists and teachers, who propose activities that “help visualize the work of female scientists, create female roles in the fields of science and engineering, and promote practices that favor the gender equality in the scientific field. ” In this third edition there are actions planned in educational centers, bookstores, cultural centers, etc.
