Powerful Speech by 10 year old on Artificial Intelligence & Empathy – Girls in Science

Statement by Anya Daneez Khan, age 10, on the occasion of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science (11 February).
———

February 11th marks the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. The theme for 2019 is “Investment in Women and Girls for Inclusive Green Growth,” and a two-day event began today (11 Feb) at UN Headquarters in New York, bringing together global experts and leaders to evaluate the economic and social impact of women’s participation in science-based sustainable development programmes.

The event featured a high-level panel focusing on the public-sector financing of science for green growth, investment to attract and retain high calibre women in science, and financing to ensure gender equality in science.

Anya Daneez Khan, a girl in the field of science, said “The reason we celebrate this Day is to make sure it becomes not a story about exceptional women but a norm that girls belong and succeed in science and technology.”

The United Nations General Assembly in 2015 declared 11 February as the International Day of Women and Girls in Science in order to achieve full and equal access to and participation in science for women and girls, and further achieve their empowerment as well as gender equality.

  5. You know what’s funny your more worried about regulating what anime people watch than the refugee crises happening right now is the un run by mentally challenged lefties?

  6. I just turned 12 as a girl and I want to say something. But before I do, I want you to know that I want to help for equality when I become older and will soon change my YouTube channel. So please enjoy this speech I’ve made about gay rights and equality.

    People who think it’s a choice to be a part of LGBTQ+ think about if it’s a choice to be straight. Exactly. YOUR just making the CHOICE to be homophobic. If you were raised like that I know it’s hard but your different than who ever raised you. If you choose not be homophobic then you are making this world better. Your probably one of the people helping others more than the president(any president). Not physically. But mentally. So if you ARE choosing to be homophobic, I’m not MAD at you. I just want you to know that you should embrace the love. For you. And for others. Thank You
