International Women's Day - in a male-dominated industry

For well over a century, we have celebrated the International Women's Day on 8 March - and of course, 2019 is no exception. The annual, global celebrations focus on the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women - and they stress that gender equality should not be taken for granted.

During 2018, we welcomed several female new-comers, and we have talked to three of them - Adeeba from Bangladesh, Pooja from India and Stine from Denmark - to hear why they chose this industry, and what they have experienced so far.
