International Women’s Day 2022

For over a hundred years, March 8 has been International Women’s Day, celebrating women’s fight for equal rights and opportunities. 
This year’s theme is “Break the Bias”.
A “bias” describes a subconscious expectation created by learned role models. This causes, for example, a male person, with the same qualifications, to be judged more competent than a female person.
Role models can also have the effect of discouraging women and girls from achieving certain professional goals. That is why the University of Stuttgart has support programs for women and girls in MINT courses. 

We at stuvus would also like to make a contribution to equality in our department responsible for this. If you would like to participate, please write an email to
