In April 2014, UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova retraced the history of the L’Oréal-UNESCO Awards for Women in Science programme, in an interview given to Ubrain TV. Over the past 16 years, the programme has recognized more than 2,000 women researchers around the globe: 1,920 fellows and 82 laureates, two of whom went on to win the Nobel Prize. On the evening of 19 March 2014, this year’s five laureates and 15 international fellows were honoured at an award ceremony held at the Université de la Sorbonne in Paris.
