We base the essay on our personal experience as Malagasy women scientists and support the arguments with the responses of 60 Malagasy women scientists to an online survey that was shared among Malagasy scientists. We identified that the main causes for a limited number of Malagasy women in STEM relied upon traditional expectations and heavily ingrained cultural values. The situation becomes more complicated when accounting for familial constraints, financial constraints, and communication gaps between students and professors. This is obviously an unfortunate situation; however, there have been bridging-gap initiatives—financial, awareness to family pressure, and knowledge difference between senior and junior scientists—that should be continued to provide support to promising students and enhance STEM education as a tool for development in Madagascar.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <dc:contributor>Ramananjato, Veronarindra</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Rakotonirina, Hanitra</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Ravaoarinorotsihoarana, Lalao A.</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2022-01-04T12:31:20Z</dc:date> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2022-01-04T12:31:20Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Voahangy Martin, Tinah</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Voarintsoa, Ny Riavo G.</dc:creator> <dcterms:issued>2021</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:title>Assessing the challenges and initiatives to increase women’s integration into science in Madagascar</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Rakotonirina, Hanitra</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Razanajatovo, Mialy</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Razafindratsima, Onja H.</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Voahangy Martin, Tinah</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Voarintsoa, Ny Riavo G.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Ramananjato, Veronarindra</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/56058"/> <dc:contributor>Ravaoarinorotsihoarana, Lalao A.</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Razafindratsima, Onja H.</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
