In recognition of the vital role women play in advancing scientific knowledge, the United Nations has designated February 11 as International Women’s and Human Rights Day. The ninth assembly of this commemoration took place at the UN headquarters in New York, bringing together women leaders and science experts from around the world to highlight the importance of women in STEM fields.
In honor of this occasion, The Conference conducted a series of interviews with women scientists from diverse generations to showcase their achievements and experiences. From mathematicians to physicists to biologists, these women have made groundbreaking contributions to science that have shaped our understanding of the world.
The Conference also emphasized the importance of encouraging and supporting young girls who are interested in pursuing careers in STEM. Women scientists in Mexico have set an inspiring example for future generations through Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, a pioneer in the history of science.
Throughout history, women have played a pivotal role in various scientific disciplines, and it is crucial to continue recognizing their contributions and supporting girls who aspire to become scientists. By doing so, we can foster sustainable development and unlock new possibilities for human knowledge and innovation.
