A common theme that runs through the book is how feminine identities, ideologies of domesticity and gender stereotypes, and the inadequacy or lack of clear policies facilitate the invisibility of women in science and technology.

gender, and science and technology. Discussions focused on three main aspects: the participation of women and girls in science and technology education and employment; their access to and use of technology; and the need to integrate a gender dimension into research content and product design.

The International Day for Women in Science serves as an annual reminder and hold us to account on how we are advancing women in science, technology and innovation more broadly and critically for achieving gender equality and ultimately, all other development goals.
