Prehistoric vision of gender in medicine

In today's world empirical media and awards are given to men in the field of medicine. In the field of Neuro surgery woman are over looked as men are seen as more capable to perform the role when a woman try applying for a position as a Neuro surgeon their application is more likely to be over looked no matter how high there grades are or recommendations they have. And for the women leading in the field report sexual abuse and are ostracized by male co workers as their male counter parts try to make them quit.

Medicine has the opportunity to demonstrate how giving equity rights and allowing this prehistoric nature of medicine and thinking to die out and show equal advancement in their field and highlight there work equals the men

Can impact other industries where women are overlooked and sometimes sexually abused and traumatized.

Dear Nicole,

I really appreciate your point of view regarding women to get equal opportunities to men.

I want you to write in more detail of your vision through writing and give solutions.

Thank you

At this present time there are no women who are being vocal or advertise their work in their field or industry.males advertise and promote their actions in their field my current solution to this is with my company that dose consulting with major industry for example public speaking with a psychologist team to bring awareness around how people can be ostracized and individuals doing this can be unaware of there actions. Most of my work focus on how changes in their company and how it run I even do one on one mentoring and advisory to unleash there potential in gaining equity in the work place... work place equity just will not mean men and women are equal but work place safety and harassment as well as bullying well decrease. And with more women in the field people can choose female only doctors as with Islamic faith women in my country don't get this opportunity to get a female doctor as so many women drop out due to unfair gender discrimination. Over the next few months me and my company will engage with individual industries that need to be targeted that have major gaps in their infrastructure. As well as my safe homes project will work hand in hand with the industries we target with this inductive we will help building safe harassment free work place for all

Dear Nicole,

You are very correct. I now see why it is difficult to see female neuro-surgeons, even in my country. Most often, women are judged based on their sex and not their intellect and performance. This is really sad. I wish mentalities can change on this. Thank you for sharing this, Nicole.

Love
