A pop-up exhibition highlighting the work of 26 women working in five science- and technology-related fields has toured secondary schools before opening to the general public last week.

She Can…, organised by the University of Malta, tells the untold stories of women who have made significant contributions to digital technologies, health and well-being, marine and maritime, sustainability and smart-manufacturing, locally and abroad.

The exhibition is being held as part of events marking the designation of Malta as the first World Capital for Women and Girls in Science for the inaugural year 2023-2024 by the Royal Academy for Science International Trust (RASIT).

This global initiative is offered under the auspices of RASIT to promote equity, diversity and inclusion in all fields of science, and place these issues at the heart of the world’s attention for a year-long celebration.

These celebrations are being coordinated by the University of Malta, the Ministry of Foreign and European Afairs and Trade and the Ministry of Education, Sport, Youth, and Research and Innovation.

She Can… is currently on display at parliament, where it invites visitors to read and be inspired by these women’s stories. It runs until February 29. Opening hours: from Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm, and on Saturdays and public holidays from 9am to noon.
