Donne e ragazze nella scienza

No. 1 (2022): La giornata dedicata alle donne e alle ragazze nella scienza

Giustizia ambientale e sociale: i due lati della stessa medaglia: 7th International Day of Women and Girls in Science

31 March 2022


The latest data produced by the Alma-Laurea consortium (2022) highlights a fact known to anyone working in education in Italy: the overtaking – constantly increasing since the early 1990s – of female graduates over male graduates is not matched by an adequate response from the labor market. On the 7th International Day of Women and Girls in Science, and with educational goals to support an equal participation in science of both girls and boys of any cultures, these pages will comment on that
data in relation to the theme of the 2022 edition: “Equity, diversity, and inclusion: Water unites us”.
