International Day of Women and Girls in Science: a message from our President-Elect

The theme for this year's International Day for Women and Girls in Science focuses on female scientists and researchers at the forefront of the fight against COVID-19. Today, and every day, we thank the female OBGYN's who continue to provide round-the-clock care to those who need it, despite facing a multitude of challenges on top of the ones they already face outside of the pandemic. 

FIGO's President-Elect, Dr Jeanne Conry, speaks on behalf of all FIGO staff and Member Societies to thank the women who are fighting not only against COVID-19, but against gender inequality, and against the barriers that prevent women from accessing the tools they need to supply the best possible care.
