Just 24 per cent of core science, technology, engineering and mathematics (Stem) roles are filled by women in the UK, according to analysis by Wise, a campaign group which aims for gender equality in the sector.

As part of the role models initiative, Barbie said it would make a donation to Wise’s My Skills My Life programme, which allows girls to explore personality types and matches them with relatable role models working in Stem.

The other women honoured by Barbie for their work in the pandemic are Amy O’Sullivan, an emergency nurse in New York; Dr Kirby White, an Australian GP who co-invented an initiative to launder and re-use medical gowns; and Dr Jaqueline Goes de Jesus, credited with leading the genomic sequencing of a Covid variant in Brazil.
