Girls' Day at BIH
The Berlin Institute of Health has participated in Girls' Day for many years to give girls an insight into the work of women scientists and to introduce them to women in scientific leadership positions.
Many women now study medicine and the life sciences, but the public perception of science is still male-dominated. In the Draw-A-Scientist test, where children are asked to draw a scientist, it is still the male scientist à la Einstein who dominates.
With our BIH Girls' Day, we want to contribute to showing students that science can also be female and that there are very different women* who are scientists.
