Union Minister for Textiles Smriti Irani has inaugurated the Women’s Science Congress at the Lovely Professional University in Jalandhar today.

Women’s Science Congress is a part of of the 106th Indian Science Congress. This is the eighth chapter of the Women’s Science Congress since it started in 2012.

The objective of the Women’s Science Congress is to showcase the work of women scientists. Many leading women scientists and distinguished women from other disciplines are participating in talks and discussions in the Congress.

After inaugurating the Women’s Science Congress, Union Minister Smriti Irani said that women are facing serious challenges in the world of science. She lamented that only about 14% of the scientists and engineers of the total 2.8 lakh people working in Indian research institutes are women. The minister said that there is a male-bias in this field and urged women to come out of the stereotype.

Smriti Irani also urged Indian Science Congress Association to come out with science journals in Indian languages to facilitate scientific fervour among rural students.

Earlier, Mrs Irani unveiled the 55 feet tall Robot structure 'Metal Magna' at the gates of the Lovely Professional University.

The Robot structure is made up of 25 tons of steel and was built in 2 months by 50 students from the Mechanical and Civil Engineering departments of Lovely Professional University.
