"An International Day for Women and Girls in Science would add prestige
to the scientific achievements within the UN system, in national contexts, in
universities and non-governmental organizations, and the private sector.

Women in Science talents, perspectives, work methods and skills could
be recognized worldwide on such a day for wide impact. Promotion of
education for women in science and for their entry into scientific careers
will also serve to build inclusive institutional climates within all countries,
and allow policies and procedures to be crafted for gender equality,
leadership training, and mentoring."
