Supporting the Girl Child
Girls and boys should be provided equal opportunities and resources to reach their full potential without limitations imposed by societal gender norms. "Girls in Science" addresses women's ongoing discrimination and barriers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). Despite an increase in the number of women enrolling in STEM programs, the representation of women in STEM positions remains disproportionately low, highlighting the need for greater inclusivity and diversity in these fields. Dr Tristha Ramamurthy, the Vice President of CMR Group of Institutions, shares her thoughts with the readers of Mentor regarding the difficulties faced by girls in the field of Science, identifying areas of improvement and ways to inspire and support young girls
