On February 11, the United Nations designated it as International Women’s and Human Rights Day to recognize and promote the importance of women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The ninth assembly of this commemoration took place at the UN headquarters in New York, where women leaders and science experts from around the world gathered to address their key role in achieving sustainable development.
In celebration of this event, The Conference published a series of interviews with women scientists from various generations as a form of recognition. These women shared their experiences and the challenges they faced in their respective fields. From mathematicians to physicists to biologists, these women have made significant contributions to the world of science.
One such woman who stands out is Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, a pioneer in the history of science who found her most emblematic mark in Mexico. Throughout history, women have played an exceptional role in various areas of science, and it is crucial to continue supporting and encouraging girls who are interested in pursuing careers in STEM. Women scientists have made significant contributions across various disciplines that have positively impacted our country and the world at large.
