FEB 11th - INTERNATIONAL DAY OF WOMEN AND GIRLS IN SCIENCE
An annual international day was created on December 22, 2015 by the General Assembly through Resolution A/RES/70/212. This was done to not only recognize the vital contributions women make in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM), but to also promote gender equality.
According to the United Nations website, the theme this year will be: “Women Scientists at the forefront of the fight against COVID-19”
