A Zoom Webinar: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82470186796
It’s 2022. Why haven’t women achieved more equity in medicine, or in other professions? When veteran physician and writer Dr. Suzanne Koven toured the country after the publication of her recent memoir-in-essays, Letter to a Young Female Physician, she expected the stories she told about sexism towards female physicians and patients, the macho culture of medicine, and the difficulty of combining pregnancy and childrearing with a medical career to be of largely historical interest to her younger audience members. It was not. At event after event she heard young female physicians tell of how inadequate accommodations during pregnancy, childcare and housework unequally shared with male partners, harassment, pay inequity, and imposter syndrome resulting from internalized sexism--all exacerbated during the Covid-19 pandemic--had contributed to burnout and caused many to leave or consider leaving clinical medicine years before they’d planned to. In this lecture Dr. Koven will examine the long history and current state of sexism in medicine and offer ideas about how policy change, male allyship, medical humanities, and even social media can help dismantle it.
