On December 22nd 2015, the 70th Session of the United Nations General Assembly adopted a groundbreaking resolution to establish an annual International Day of Women and Girls in Science. This resolution demonstrates the commitment of Member States to achieving gender equality for women in science which remains a major challenge. Inequality hinders the capacity of nations to unlock the full transformative contribution which women in science can make to our world.
Inclusion of an International Day of women and Girls in Science annually on 11 February during the annual session of the Commission on Social Development would bring the issue of advanced education in all scientific fields to wide public attention and help to popularize many of the SDGs in the mind of the greater public.
The commemoration of the day will also enable people worldwide to discuss the many existing challenges and issues facing women and societies today, and then to determine the indispensable solutions, actions, policies and programmes to overcome these issues through science-based accomplishments in sustainable development by women in science.
To honour all the Women in Science, and all the Girls who want to be the scientists in the future, here we'll post some pictures of our favourite actresses playing scientists in their films, TV series or stage roles.
