About 5,200 boys and girls confirm the effect of the action days and Girls'Day/ Boys'Day on their career choices. This is an important result of the pre-post survey for the first time used as an instrument for measuring the direct and long-term effect. Following the action days more than 50 percent of the questioned girls declared themselves in favour for professions in which women are mostly underrepresented. That's 18 percent more than before the Girls'Day.
