Celebrating women in science

CHANGE isn’t happening. In fact, it has happened. Although globally, the number of women remain under represented in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields, the situation is different in Malaysia.

In conjunction with International Women’s Day, StarEdu talks to three female scientists who are paving the way for more women to make a name for themselves in the sciences.

These impressive women all agree that there are certainly more women in STEM compared to the past.

However, more support is needed to bring more women into the sector.

Ramsay Sime Darby Health Care and Bursa Malaysia Berhad are the campaign sponsors of The Star’s WOW - Women do Wonders campaign to celebrate and pay tribute to women in conjunction with International Women’s Day on March 8. For details, go to http://Bit.ly/thestarwowfiesta
