Over the past 25 years, the United Nations and its agencies have realized the gender-gap in science; however, the advancement of women and girls in science has not only stalled,
but the international community is seeing a recidivist slide backwards.  The question to be asked is "Why?" Why have there been so few female scientists chosen to speak at
high-level events, or selected to take part in international decision-making bodies, or to deal with policy formulation?
