To date, the China Young Women Scientist Award has recognized 204 distinguished female researchers. Thirteen laureates have been elevated to become academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Chinese Academy of Engineering.

Lan Zhenzhen, president of public affairs for L'Oreal North Asia and China, has seen firsthand the growth of female scientists in China.

She notes that female scientists are receiving more recognition and are offered better work environments, including improved equipment.

"I still remember our senior scientist, Chen Saijuan, saying how tough it was back then. Now, when we visit the laboratories of our female scientists, they are truly impressive."

She also says that female scientists are working in increasingly diverse fields that closely relate to our daily lives.

"These scientists not only excel in their scientific fields, but also take on significant social responsibilities. They engage in science education for young people, visit schools and participate in charitable activities," Lan says.

Every year, the award-winning female scientists seem to smash traditional perceptions.

"Some are also musicians who hold solo concerts. Some are adventurers who dive. And some are excellent swimmers. Their talents are truly diverse," she says.
