Celebrating Women in Science

Inspiration from the global south

Gender barriers in research and knowledge systems perpetuate discrimination and create different pathways for men and women. They prevent the creation and use of knowledge that can enable inclusive, just and sustainable development.

Women across the globe continue to be excluded from participating fully in science and research, but women working in the Global South face even more challenges than those in other regions.

This collection of interviews has been compiled in recognition of the inspiring personal stories, and amazing work undertaken by our partners (and other women in the Global South).

From actively addressing gender issues in male dominated institutions, providing mentoring and support to other women, or overcoming personal challenges to pursue excellence in their field, meet six women who are making a difference.
