International Day of Women & Girls in Science - 11th February

Last year the UN proclaimed an International Day of Women and Girls in Science on 11th February each year. The IOP is encouraging schools, teachers and students to share their favourite female scientists using #WomeninSTEM and this poster

It would be great if university departments could join us in this celebration, pinning up posters on office doors and labs or simply a picture of you holding the poster. We would also hope that you can encourage undergraduate students to join in. Please forward this message to colleagues and post graduates in your physics departments, and feel free to share with other STEM subjects as well.

The following message can be shared more widely:

11 February is the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. We're sharing our favourite female scientists using #WomeninSTEM and this poster . Pin it up in your lab - and tweet us a picture on 11 February!
