Today is International Women’s Day, which is a global celebration of the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

This year, the theme #BeBoldForChange encourages everyone to play a part in helping drive better outcomes for women.

We are joining this celebration by highlighting the amazing contribution women are making in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM), with a focus on those contributing to microbiological research around the world. Our Journals have brought together profiles and articles written by some of the female researchers leading the way in various fields across the field of microbiology.

Read inspiring stories of some of these leading women in microbiology here.
