Celebrating International Women’s Day

8 Mar, 2015

The theme of International Women’s Day 2015 is “Make it Happen”, so we asked attendees of the Wellcome Trust’s Women in Science event to share their thoughts and advice on encouraging women in the field. Here is a selection of their responses – what would you add? Share your suggestions in the comments section, or add them on Twitter using the #WomenInScience hashtag.

    TRIBUTE TO WOMANHOOD
    (A POEM By Pastor Ochiabuto Kalu Okorie)

    Oh my mother!
    You carried me in your womb for nine months
    You pushed me out of your womb at the due time
    You nurtured me with your sweet breast milk when I was a baby
    You carried me in your bosom when I was tender and fragile
    You taught me the first lessons of life
    Oh my mother!
    I can never forget your love and affection
    That’s why I am always proud to call you
    ‘Mummy’…
