International Day of Women and Girls in Science seeks to recognize the achievements of women and girls in science. This day encourages more women and girls to seek out STEM-related fields. STEM includes the sciences, technology, engineering, and mathematics. According to the U.S. Census, in 2021, women made up only 27% of those employed in science and engineering occupations. This day also aims to promote gender equality and eliminate discrimination.
