Celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science at the Aga Khan Museum with a thought-provoking panel of leading Muslim women scientists, presented in partnership with Massey College and the Canadian Commission for UNESCO. Find inspiration in their stories, careers, and path-breaking research.

The International Day of Women and Girls in Science was declared by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015 to promote gender equality through the empowerment of women and girls and to provide them with full and equal access to participation and leadership opportunities in science.
