About this Research Topic
At present, less than 30% of researchers worldwide are women. Long-standing biases and gender stereotypes are discouraging women and girls away from science-related fields, and STEM research in particular. Science and gender equality are, however, essential to ensure sustainable development as highlighted by UNESCO. In order to change traditional mindsets, gender equality must be promoted, stereotypes defeated, and girls and women should be encouraged to pursue STEM careers.
This Research Topic aims to bring the contributions from female researchers in all areas of Chemistry into the spotlight. The work presented here highlights the diversity of research performed across the entire breadth of the discipline.
Please note: To be considered for this collection, the leading/corresponding author should be a female researcher. All new articles will be added as they are published. You can find our 2022 Women in Chemistry here .
Keywords: Women, STEM, Diversity, UNESCO, International Day of Women and Girls in Science, Chemistry
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
