As Lebanese researcher Maya Atieh pursued her doctorate in water resource engineering, she juggled the demands of her research with another set of obligations that many of her colleagues didn't have to think about her two young sons.Atieh was one of six women honored for their achievements in science Wednesday at a ceremony organized annually by UNESCO and the L'Oreal Corporate Foundation. The L'Oreal-UNESCO for Women in Science Levant fellowships program, launched in 2014 in partnership with Lebanon's National Council for Scientific Research, honors six young women scientists from Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, Jordan and Iraq each year. This year, two doctoral students and four post-doctoral researchers were honored for their contributions to the field.Although increasing numbers of women are entering science, technology, engineering and math, the fields remain male-dominated. Abu-Shoga, an assistant professor of mathematics at the Islamic University of Gaza who specializes in complex geometry, said she faced challenges both from the conditions of life in Gaza and as a woman entering a male-dominated field.
