"Last year, I spoke about turning a dream into reality, and this
year, we are moving from reality into a year of implementation
and strong commitment to support women and girls in
science and in science education for the SDGs and beyond...  
With our presence at the United Nations, we have been
writing future history, and today is part of our idea of creating
history sooner than later...

Today we celebrate the achievements of women, known and
unknown, remembered and forgotten, who have forged the
way for those of us in science today. The International Day of
Women and Girls in Science logo depicts just this...
