The United Nations International Day of Women and Girls in Science is celebrated each year on 11th February. It reminds us that women and girls play an essential role in the scientific and technological community and that their involvement must be promoted. The theme of this year's day is Women Scientists at the Forefront of the Fight Against COVID-19. The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has clearly demonstrated the critical role of women researchers in different stages of the fight against COVID-19, from advancing the knowledge on the virus, to developing techniques for testing, and finally to creating the vaccine against the virus.
