Focus On Women - Call for Experts

Be included in a tip sheet for reporters. A communications service from Asia Research News.

A resource for journalists to find stories and sources.

At Asia Research News, we have a strong network of researchers at institutes throughout Asia and beyond. Our Focus On series highlights ongoing research and expertise around one theme or topic.

Our next Focus On will be about women, to offer story ideas and sources for International Women’s Day on March 8. We would like to include researchers who are prepared to speak with international media about any research related to women and women’s issues. International media will be interested in research around:

  • Women’s health (reproductive health, menopause, mental health, cancers, etc.)
  • Women-specific drug development
  • Gender equality
  • Women in business/economics
  • Women in politics
  • Women in STEM (science, tech, engineering, math)
  • Women in art, history, sociology, literature, etc.
  • Childcare services
  • Child marriage
  • Education
  • COVID-19

This is just a partial list. If you have researchers working on any aspect around women, even those not already mentioned, please let us know.
As part of International Women’s Day, we want to help celebrate everyone involved in research focused on women and celebrate women in our research community.
We would also like to hear about any awesome female researchers making a difference -- in any fieldThey do not have to do research focused on/about women. Perhaps they are in physics, biotech, computer science, ocean science, etc. Please join us in this celebration and encourage your colleagues to participate.

Please complete the following short form and return to Aya Kawanishi – [email protected] no later than 10 February 2021.
