UNESCO and the Fondation L’Oréal seek to recognise women researchers who, through the scope of their work, have contributed to overcoming today’s global challenges.

 

Today, only 33% of researchers are women1. Stereotypes conceal a significant part of scientific history and perpetuate gender inequality in the access to these fields of study and careers. We cannot afford to deprive ourselves of the talents of half of humanity: women advance science, and science advances the world.
