Now in its seventh year, International Day of Women and Girls in Science is an important reminder not only of the crucial work women in science are doing, but also of the work still to be done in tackling the STEM gender gap. Here are nine pioneering women making a difference in their fields.

As pressure on water resources grows around the world, the UN has dedicated this year’s International Day of Women and Girls in Science to its sixth sustainable development goal, focused on clean water and sanitation. Now in its seventh year, the day is an important reminder not only of the crucial work women in science are doing, but also of the work still to be done in tackling the STEM gender gap. Here are nine pioneering women making a difference in their fields.

There are many more inspiring women who could have made this list, doing great things in STEM across the world. Although the balance is gradually shifting, men still far outnumber women in these industries – showing how much work there is still to be done.
