International Day of Women and Girls in Science

International Day of Women and Girls in Science

In 2016, The UK declared the 11th of February as International Day of Women and Girls in Science. The main reason for this declaration was to encourage more girls and women to take up jobs in the fields of science.  This year’s celebration will address the theme of Women Scientists at the forefront of the fight against COVID-19 and will gather together experts working in fields related to the pandemic from different parts of the world.
