Celebrating International Women’s Day 

International Women’s Day was established to celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. It is a day to recognize the progress made towards gender equality, while also acknowledging the work that still needs to be done. At ScienceOpen, we are committed to celebrating International Women’s Day by honouring the spirit of empowerment, equality, and inclusivity and promoting scientific research related to the UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 5: Gender Equality. 

“SDG5 aims to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls” 

This International Women’s Day, we would like to shine a spotlight on the wealth of research on ScienceOpen that is dedicated to addressing issues faced by women globally and committed to advancing gender equality worldwide
