Today the presence of woman in the Tunisian university is equal or even superior to that of man. Moreover, according to a study including 114 countries carried out during the period from 2015 to 2017 and published on May 2019 by the World Bank, Tunisia ranks the second position at the international scale in terms of percentage of women with university science degrees (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics).

In order to shed light on the main challenges, which confront Tunisian women and girls in the scientific fields and to value their professional careers, the Tunis Science City celebrated on Saturday, February 8th, 2020, the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. They are microbiologists, chemists, paleontologists, journalists, designers and engineers and they all have brilliant careers and went through a unique path which were presented to the public in order to develop the perception of people, notably youngsters, about scientific careers and engineering and spark their curiosity about different fields.
