Women have made crucial contributions to human knowledge, yet their scientific achievements have often gone unrecognized throughout history. To promote the importance of women in STEM fields, the United Nations designated February 11 as International Women’s and Human Rights Day. During the ninth assembly of this commemoration at the UN headquarters in New York, women leaders and science experts from around the world gathered to highlight their key role in achieving sustainable development.
In recognition of this event, The Conference published a series of interviews with women scientists from various generations, sharing their experiences and the challenges they faced in their respective fields. From mathematicians to physicists to biologists, these women have made significant contributions to the world of science.
Young girls interested in pursuing careers in science were also spoken to, emphasizing the importance of encouraging and supporting them in STEM fields. Women scientists in Mexico find one of their most emblematic exponents in Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, who was a pioneer in the history of science.
Throughout history, women have played an exceptional role in various areas of science, and it is crucial to continue supporting and encouraging girls who are interested in pursuing careers in STEM. Women scientists have made and continue to make significant contributions to our country and the world of science across various disciplines.
