ICRA commemorates the two international days of Women and Girls in Science and Women Workers' Day with touring exhibitions
In February and March, two exhibitions have been set up at ICRA to celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, which is celebrated on 11 February, and the International Working Women's Day, on 8 March.
The first exhibition is a collection of different female researchers who have played a prominent role in science. This exhibition is in the reception of the ICRA building and aims to highlight female scientists in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) scientific careers.
The second exhibition is an exhibition on women who have made a significant contribution to inland water research (limnology). Currently more than half of the undergraduate limnologists are women. However, as in other disciplines, its presence is markedly declining at the highest levels of the scientific career. This exhibition presents a historical retrospective of the most outstanding female scientists in limnology both internationally and in the Iberian Peninsula. It also points out in a simple and illustrative way what the situation of women in Limnology is and their perspective on the future.
