Why Support Women and Girls in Science and Technology?
Despite progress in ensuring opportunities for women in STEM fields, women and girls continue to be systematically underrepresented as users and leaders in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. In order to achieve the sustainable development goals, we need to ensure full and equal access to and participation in science for women and girls.
February 11 is International Day of Women and Girls in Science. Join UN Women in celebrating women and girls in STEM fields, challenging stereotypes, and championing opportunities for women and girls in science and technology.
