Femmes & Sciences Association
The French “Women & Science” association
Following the pioneering studies by Huguette Delavault on the overall situation of women in science and the observation that women were notably absent at various important decision levels in science and technology, a group of women from various science disciplines and professional backgrounds founded the association « Women & Science. »
The association « Women & Science » has as partners the associations femmes & mathématiques, Femmes Ingénieurs and APMST. A poster « Women in Science and Engineering » edited in cooperation with these associations is available here.
The association « Women & Science » is a full member of the European Platform of Women Scientists (EPWS) and is represented in its present Board of Administration.
