Science is a collaborative discipline.
Yet science is being held back by a gender gap.

Today's International Day belongs to all women and girls who aspire to be in science. According to the #UN, less than 30% of researchers worldwide are women. This must change. My Commission will work hard to achieve full and equal access of women & girls in science! #IDWGS pic.twitter.com/5G2vEQZmCK

Today we stress the need to tackle gender stereotypes, for women and girls to freely enter and thrive in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
The EU is solidifying its approach in this area through gender mainstreaming throughout the life cycle. pic.twitter.com/jlen1xw8JS

The #H2020 @GENDERACTION_EU project set up a network of national policymakers & civil servants to advance #GenderEquality in STEM.

On @WomenScienceDay please consider asking men in science why there aren't more women in science because, trust me, that's where much of the explanation lies. There are wonderful male allies but also a huge degree of lingering sexism.
