Involvement and Role of Women and Girls in Science / Interesting Statistics in Covid Pandemic Management / 19


February 11 is recognized as the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, adopted in September 2015 in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals by 2030 regarding the advancement of science, technology and gender equality.
Gender equality has always been an essential issue for the United Nations. On December 22, 2015, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution to establish an annual International Day, February 11, to recognize the important role that women and girls play in the science and technology communities. This day serves to raise awareness of the community, but also women themselves about the opportunities and skills they have to develop in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (abbreviated with the initials STEM science, technology, engineering and mathematics).
The UN over the years has encouraged all governments to invest in women and girls in science for inclusive growth in National, Regional and International Development Agenda, including new research infrastructures and centers to foster research and scientific development.
An interesting indicator during 2020 related to the management of the Covid / 19 pandemic is the fact that countries with female leaders managed to better manage and control the situation both in terms of health and economy.
Germany, led by Chancellor Angela Merkel coming from a successful career at the Berlin Academy of Sciences, has been one of the least affected countries in Europe by COVID-19 and where the crisis was and continues to be managed effectively.
