Statement by Anya Daneez Khan, age 10, on the occasion of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science (11 February).

February 11th marks the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. The theme for 2019 is “Investment in Women and Girls for Inclusive Green Growth,” and a two-day event began today (11 Feb) at UN Headquarters in New York, bringing together global experts and leaders to evaluate the economic and social impact of women’s participation in science-based sustainable development programmes.

The event featured a high-level panel focusing on the public-sector financing of science for green growth, investment to attract and retain high calibre women in science, and financing to ensure gender equality in science.

Anya Daneez Khan, a girl in the field of science, said “The reason we celebrate this Day is to make sure it becomes not a story about exceptional women but a norm that girls belong and succeed in science and technology.”

The United Nations General Assembly in 2015 declared 11 February as the International Day of Women and Girls in Science in order to achieve full and equal access to and participation in science for women and girls, and further achieve their empowerment as well as gender equality.
