Individuals who self-identify as women have been positioned in society as second to the self-identified male. This construction of social norms remains consistent throughout the medical field. Women must go above-and beyond overwhelming standards to prove their abilities and qualification for positions alongside fellow male colleagues. For example, recently more women in academic medicine are working to attain MBAs to prove their business acumen at a rate that their male counterparts don't before being awarded Dean positions. How do you think this systemic trivialization of women's roles in society, and by continuation the medical field, has expanded women's ability to contribute to medicine?
