The International Day of Women and Girls in Science, 7th Anniversary of the Global Movement, February 11, 2022.
We at PAMCA also recognize the role of women and girls in science, not only as beneficiaries, but also as agents of change, including accelerating progress towards the achievement of SDG 6 (Clean Water and Sanitation), which falls in line with the theme of this year's celebration and is pertinent to vector control efforts. “Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion: Water Unites Us".
Growing up, Rosalia Joseph knew she would become a scientist! As a female young scientist, she is calling on young girls and women to take up more spaces in science. We hope that her story will inspire you to join us in making a change for the many women and girls around the world, whose potential is waiting to be realised.
