Women in science: how to achieve equality in academia 

 
 

Even though more and more women pursue scientific studies, only one in three researchers in the EU are women. With the International Day of Women and Girls in Science being marked on 11 February, we asked MEPs Eva Kaili and Michèle Rivasi what should be done to attract more women to science. Watch the video to find out what they had to say.

MEPs regularly call for initiatives to put an end to gender stereotypes. For example, in 2015 they adopted a report on women in science and the obstacles they need to overcome.
