Today is International Day of Women and Girls in Science. This year’s theme is ‘Investment in Women and Girls in Science for Inclusive Green Growth’.

Science and gender equality are both vital for the achievement of the internationally agreed development goals, including the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Over the past 15 years, the global community has made a lot of effort in inspiring and engaging women and girls in science. Yet women and girls continue to be excluded from participating fully in science.

#WomenInScience is the hashtag to use when adding your voice to calls for an end to this exclusion.
