International Day of Women & Girls in Science
By resolution of the United Nations General Assembly on 22 December 2015, February 11th has been proclaimed the International Day of Women & Girls in Science! This day serves to value the role and contribution of women and girls in science and promotes the full and equal access to participation in science for women and girls.
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. The UN’s Agenda for Sustainable Development for 2030, among other internationally agreed upon development goals, calls for action in both science and gender equality. RASIT continues to empower, promote and recognize achievements of women and girls in science

“Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home - so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world." - Eleanore Roosevelt
