February 11, 2016 was the first UN International Day of Women and Girls in Science! 

The Australian Embassy is pleased to share five inspiring stories of Australian Women who are top scientists and researchers in their fields!
From a Quantum Physicist tasked with creating the next supercomputer that could change the face of international business, weather forecasting and drug design to a Malaria Specialist trying to find a new treatment for the disease before strains of the virus that resist existing medication reach Africa, they are proving that women and girls can excel in the world of Science and Technology!
The Australian Embassy in Micronesia joins the UN in recognizing that science and gender equality are both vital to achieving international sustainable development! And celebrate with the rest of the world, the first-ever International Day of Women and Girls in Science!
