5 days of celebration of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science is over. National authorities from more than 15 countries were addressed with calls for strengthening their efforts in the area of gender equality in research or for introducing new measures. Some national governmental bodies, ministries and research funding organisations joined the campaign to present their achievements. Teams of GENDERACTION and GEARING-Roles would like to thank all who participated and helped with sharing the call to action. Your support and involvement have been amazing. Special thanks go to our sister projects!
