In March 2013 the COST Action MP1210 The String Theory Universe was initiated for a duration of four years. The objectives were mainly scientific, but we were comitted to take a series of actions to address the problems that women that want to pursue a scientific career confront.
Given the huge imbalance in the area (only 15% of the Action members were women) we thought that the problems were severe and something had to be done.
In this talk I will speak about the initiatives that we took in order to make visible these problems to all of our colleagues and favour a change of perspective.
I think that our conclusions are still valid today.
