International Day for Women and Girls in Science: February 11
February 11th is “International Day for Women and Girls in Science”.
This is an anniversary established by the United Nations.
Women’s rights tend to be neglected, especially in the fields of “science,” “research,” and “decision-making.”
According to UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization), women make up less than 30% of the world’s researchers.
Among them, the percentage of women working in the fields of “science and technology,” “engineering,” and “mathematics” is extremely low.
In order to improve these, it is necessary to promote the spread of science and technology by holding awards and exhibitions.
