IAU Women and Girls
in Astronomy Day

Activities organised around February 11th will be the perfect opportunity to celebrate girls and women in astronomy - by encouraging girls to consider careers in astronomy and by celebrating women astronomers.

How to get involved?

We encourage everyone to get involved with the Women and Girls in Astronomy Day by running events in your local community. This can include public talks, activities, workshops, and more. You can find examples of inspiration to organise activities and information on how to run inclusive and accessible events. In addition to the worldwide events on February 11th, events and activities throughout the month of February to celebrate women in astronomy are also encouraged.
