Today is International Day of Women and Girls in Science

February 11 is International Day of Women and Girls in Science Graphic
Today is a day to celebrate the women who have made careers in science and the girls who dream of following in their footsteps.

For the past few decades, the number of women graduating from college has surpassed that of men. Even so, women graduate from STEM programs at about half the rate of their male counterparts. To encourage women to pursue science, we have chosen three sapphic books with scientists as main characters.

Curious what tomorrow’s special day will be?

Make sure to check back each day for your daily calendar trivia, along with more great book recommendations! Any day spent reading sapphic books is a day to be celebrated!
