Place: Jardí Botànic de la Universitat de València C/ Quart 80 46008 València


To visualise the work of female scientists, to claim their contributions, to facilitate and promote the access of women and girls to scientific and technical fields and to promote the practising of activities which favour equality. These are some of the aims of the commemoration of the International Day of the Women and Girls in Science, celebrated since 2016. This year it will be held at the Botanic Garden with a series of activities which include talks, debates and the screening of the film “Figuras Ocultas” (Hidden Figures).

We expect the series of activities we have prepared to serve as an inspiration for present and new generations. In order to do so, we will count on the presence of first level female scientists who will share the projects in which they are focused. We will show the remarkable contribution of women in sectors with scarce female presence and we will reflexion over the role of women in fields like the science-fiction.
