International Day Of Women And Girls In Science.

International Day Of Women And Girls In Science.

On 11.02, we’ll be honouring a journey marked by perseverance, breakthroughs, and the relentless pursuit of knowledge.

International Day Of Women And Girls In Science is not just a day on the calendar but a growing global movement that underscores the critical role women and girls play in science and technology.

And dentistry is no stranger to advancements in this domain.

In the 1800s, women were thought to have fingers that were "too fragile" to practise dentistry. Emeline Roberts Jones was denied access to the profession for this reason, but she persevered! By practising in secret, people could see her talent, and thanks to this, she was 'allowed' to practise dentistry, becoming the first woman to practise dentistry in the United States in 1855.

Across the globe, initiatives to engage girls from a young age in mathematics and science are reshaping our future and breaking through the barriers of gender biases.

The journey ahead remains challenging, but the trajectory is promising. We must continue to advocate for policies that support equitable access to science education and career paths for women and girls worldwide.

Together, we can inspire change and ensure that the next generation of women scientists is empowered to pursue their passion without limits.
