Hello Science Fans!
How can science and technology help achieve gender equality and empower women?
In this video, we talk about the current status of gender equality in the world and in The Philippines. We look at the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on the existing inequality and difficulties that women face. We also look at the different indicators that the United Nations (UN) has created to help achieve Sustainable Development Goal 5 (SDG 5): Gender Equality. We confront the different challenges, biases, traditions, and beliefs that hinder our achievement of gender equality, while showcasing what we can do to help improve the status of women and girls all over the world! And, of course, we look at how STEM can be an agent of change and help achieve this goal.
So, if you want to help in empowering women and achieving gender equality — I hope you can check out this video!
