Achieving sustainable development requires the full inclusion of women and girls in science

Despite advancements in women's education, a significant gender gap persists across all levels of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) globally. In recognition of this issue, on the occasion of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, the International Science Council (ISC) supported a statement at the 9th Assembly of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science.

The International Science Council is the global organization bringing together scientific academies, disciplinary bodies in the natural and social sciences and other scientific organizations. It is deeply committed to equality of opportunity in access to education and participation in the scientific endeavour. This commitment to equity eschews difference on the basis of sex or gender.
