Question special

Ashley asked some great questions earlier about the reasons that may be women underrepresented in medical leadership. Multiple people noted that promotion rates are much slower for women in the academic setting for a variety of reasons, including lack of time for research/publications or an inability to uproot their family for a promotion. Is the slower rate of promotion also common in clinical medicine? If so, why do you think that is the case? Is it due to reduced hours, women not frequently asking to be promoted, etc.?
