Women in Science

For the first Women in Science Day GenPORT will release a series of video interviews with leading figures of the Gender and Science landscape in Europe.
United Nations General Assembly declared 11 February as the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. "Women and girls continued to be excluded from participating fully in science. According to a study conducted in 14 countries, the probability for female students of graduating with a Bachelor’s degree, Master’s degree and Doctor’s degree in science-related field are 18%, 8% and 2% respectively, while the percentages of male students are 37%, 18% and 6%".

GenPORT will release during the upcoming weeks a series of video interviews with leading figures of the Gender and Science landscape in Europe. The interviews aim to provide short and concise statements regarding key issues such as gender equality policies, the incorporation of a gender perspective into research content or the implementation of gender equality policies in universities and research performing organisations.

18 clips, including (in no particular order) Martina Schraudner, Ana Proykova, Elizabeth Pollitzer, Lisbeth Øyum and Tove Håpnes, Gloria Bonder, Ana Puy, Margarethe Hochleitner, Jacques Mairesse, Mihaela Nica, Mieke Verloo, Marike Kolossa, Arn Sauer, Ineke Klinge, Gerlind Wallon, Sanne Peters, Fredrik Bondestam, Ulrike Roehr and Peter van den Besselaar.

The first is Prof. Dr. Mieke Verloo(link is external) who is Professor of Comparative Politics and Inequality Issues in Radboad Univeristy in the Netherlands and Research Director of the QUING Project on Quality in Gender and Equality Policies. In her short clip she gives a very fine introduction how gender equality policies can make a difference in people's lives.
