"As a scientist and a woman, I cannot
express how excited I am to see the United
Nations take up a cause that I have
championed my entire life...
Recognizing a problem is always the first
step toward addressing it, and the UN
resolution founding the International Day of
Women and Girls in Science is an excellent
development. It signals the global
community's interest in achieving gender
parity in educational opportunity and scientific
participation-an important issue in Canada
and around the globe".

    Minister of Science, Canada

subjects and careers. Unfortunately, there is still a massive skills shortage in
these industries, which will only increase in the future unless decisive action is
taken now.

This is the first such commemorative day dedicated to asking these questions
and coming up with solutions to a problem that affects communities from the
wealthiest, most urbane settings to the poorest corners of the globe.  In place
after place, women and girls are lagging behind their male counterparts in the
sciences. A quick look at the stats shows why the international community so
urgently needs to do a better job of  promoting women in science.
