Almost three hundred Tweets, ten EU sister projects involved, and plenty of individuals and research funding and performing organisations (our consortium members including) joined the celebrations of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science between 11 and 17 February under #SafeAcademia on Twitter.

GENDERACTIONplus used the opportunity to present initial findings from our benchmarking that, among other issues, focused on gender-based violence and sexual harassment policies at the national level and those adopted by RFOs. During the 7-day campaign, our Twitter account got 12.5K impressions, 70 retweets and 189 likes.

The campaign also ran in the Czech language. Among those involved were, for example, the ambassadors of Germany and Canada to the Czech Republic or the Minister for science and research.

At the international level, in addition to disseminating information about the campaign, active campaign participants addressed the topic from various angles. See for yourself below some of the selected Tweets or find more on Twitter.
