Irene Moreno-Medina vindicates the role of women in research within the Woman and Science Hackathon of the UAM

Last week the International Day of Women and Girls in Science was celebrated and, as a commemoration, the Autonomous University of Madrid held an online Hackathon to make visible the role of women in science and innovation.

In the event, Irene Moreno-Medina, from the Department of Pedagogy of the UAM and member of the UNESCO Chair in Education for Social Justice of the UAM participated. Irene vindicated the role of women in science and, in particular, in social sciences and humanities. In addition, she stressed that there are still many pending struggles for women researchers, for example, regarding conciliation and care.
