Today marks the 6th Annual International Day of Women and Girls in Science. Since 2016, the United Nations has set aside February 11 each year to recognize the achievements of women and girls in scientific pursuits. The event, organized by UNESCO and UN-Women, seeks to promote full and equal access to and participation in science for women and girls. This year’s theme is “Women Scientists at the forefront of the fight against COVID-19.”
ACS Publications supports this goal and joins with scientists around the world in celebrating this important day. We salute our many women editors, authors, reviewers, and readers who contribute to the American Chemical Society’s mission “to advance the broader chemistry enterprise and its practitioners for the benefit of Earth and its people.”
