At the UN headquarters in New York, women leaders and science experts gathered to recognize the crucial role of women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The conference celebrated this occasion by publishing a series of interviews with women scientists from different generations who shared 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. They have paved the way for future generations of women scientists and inspired young girls to pursue careers in STEM fields.
One such woman is Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz from Mexico, who was a pioneer in the history of science. Her contributions have been recognized as exceptional, and she continues to serve as an emblematic figure for women scientists worldwide.
It is essential to continue supporting and encouraging girls interested in pursuing careers in STEM fields. Women scientists have made significant contributions to our country and the world of science across various disciplines, including medicine, engineering, computer science, and more. Their contributions are crucial for sustainable development, which is why it’s important that we recognize their importance on International Women’s and Human Rights Day every year.
