Abstract

The first program of "Women and the Days" is dedicated to women and astronomy. In the first part of the program Carme Jordi, astronomer at the ICCUB working on the Gaia Mission of the European Space Agency, talks about her scientific career and Gaia.

Francesca Figueras is the first female president of the Spanish Society of Astronomy and researcher at the ICCUB in the Gaia mission. In the final part of the program, she speaks about a group of women who measured the stars from the Harvard Observatory in the nineteenth century and who did not have the recognition they deserved considering the importance of their discoveries, the so-called Ģcalculators of Harvard ģ
Margalida Capellā, professor of Greek at IES Premiā de Mar, in the second interview of the program discovers the stories of harassment and contempt towards women in the myths that explain stars and constellations.
