In science and technology, the proportion of women employed varies across different sectors.

Latvia stands out as a leader among EU Member States when it comes to the proportion of women employed in these fields, with occupations ranging from systematic generation and advancement of scientific knowledge to associated professionals.

According to recent data released for International Day of Women and Girls in Science on February 11th, Lithuania had the highest shares of women employed in science and technology occupations, followed closely by Corse in France and Latvia.
