“Be curious, be brave and be fair”.
International Day of Women and Girls in Science began as a resolution by the United Nations in 2015. The mission was to address the gender gap in STEM fields by celebrating the contributions and achievements of women in Science. Women and girls represent half of the world’s population and, therefore, also half of its potential. Gender equality, besides being a fundamental human right, is essential to achieve peaceful societies, with full human potential and sustainable development. However, women remain a minority in digital information technology, computing, physics, mathematics and engineering. An annual observance adopted by the United Nations General Assembly is to promote the full and equal access and participation of females. GD Goenka Public School, Rohini, Sector 9 observes this day with pride.
