I don't know who needs to hear this, but providing examples of being nice or supportive to women in your own family does not make on a feminist or pro-woman nor does that make you anti-racist regarding POC or WOC or BIPOC. The "I am a good person" is at the root of much harm.
Okay, I do know who needs to hear this and this was not really a subtweet because the individuals who fit this description do not use Twitter. But there is more than one individual who may or may not need to have some deep reflection on what "I am a good person" says about ego.
This is from Australia. If in these times, as a not BIPOC, certainly as a not Black person in America, you are asking "Are you calling me a racist?!" (when that word not uttered but, yes, #implicitbias exists and racism is a #public health crisis)....…

🧵THREAD on Hardouin et al (2020) #MedBikini article #MedTwitter


Editors' response:

Unconscious bias = implicit bias
Conscious bias = explicit, intentional

So in this is essentially misogyny and conflicts with human rights to free speech/private life. Image

Methodological concerns: unspecified definition of 'controversial'. There needs to a validated definition.

🗣️ "Controversial political and religious comments were

Controversial social comments...on abortion and gun control."

Moral concerns: clinicians performed searches on social media to conduct their research.

To be fair this is what patients could/would do. I'm not condoning this methodology.

I've had patients tell me that "I'm established" when I first met them from Googling me. 😳

So much to unpack here

Thankfully I experienced the opposite in my own residency
BUT then I was unprepared for this after residency

When described this way by faculty, then can a woman really choose to describe herself similar to men without invoking backlash and social cost?
The word choices here are signaling values

difference in what valued by gender and it predicts this later

expected of women:
special favors
emotional labor
friendship behaviors
constant availability

can women hold others accountable?…
This extends to direct reports too. What if one stops bringing snacks, being maternal (the giving tree)?

Is it fair to make it a women’s job, already overburdened and underpaid, to support other women?

Or can there be accountability & standards?…

In all places, particularly, in #Pakistan, extremely important for mothers, female role models & #HeforShe men to encourage young women and girls to be expressive, out of box, push boundaries, and never go silent.

Admire you on so many levels @ayesha_mian1
The only way to advocate for the voiceless and marginalized is to use any source of privilege one may have to create space, amplify others, and be willing to be told one is “too much” in myriad ways. What is the standard to measure too much, tho? If measure is status quo...
Who designed the metrics of “just right” vs “too much” and who defined “good” vs “bad”?

What gender, ethnicity/tribe, religion, etc wrote “the rules” - overt & unspoken?

What cultural triggers are there to invoke, anger, disgust, shame?

Who is in/out group?

Are others silent?

Joining our @CORD_EM Mini-Fellowship on Wellness Leadership is Dr. Jennifer @Kanapicki, @StanfordEMED APD, and @aaeminfo BOD president giving a talk on "1440 minutes: Time Management Tools for the Busy Physicians"

#doctorsarehumanstoo #efficiencyinpractice #HeForShe ImageImage
Understanding time management allows us to focus on ourselves and OUR time.

When execs are asked about what they value the most? the answer is TIME.

Check out some tips from Dr. @Kanapicki:…
1. Do an inventory of your time in a day
2. If you have 2 more hours in a day. What would you do with it? (this serves as a goal on what you can do better)

- family, more time with friends, time to be outside, time to pick up a new hobby, etc.

Invest 1440 minutes well. Image

The lack of gender equity & diversity in academia is extremely apparent at graduation, when primarily white male admin bestow well-wishes onto the next gen of health professionals.

Representation matters.
Seeing mentors who look like you matters.

People care. LONG THREAD

Three weeks ago, I tweeted that I wanted to create a library of words of wisdom from #MedTwitter to bestow upon the class of 2020, whose last months at school have been rough.

@drjessigold proposed creating a video mashup. 35 people personally msged me wanting to help.
That's when @RakheeBhayaniMD said we should do this. And believed in us from the start.

Three students: @NicoleBKatz @ZarinIRahman @SarahJo_nearMD immediately reached out. We are from different schools. We have the same goal: WE WANT DIVERSE SPEAKERS to honor STEM grads.

🤩I am constantly marveled by the endless ways in which we #Pathology and #LabMedicine, can use Twitter to engage, share, support & learn from each other. Here is the link to my presentation that celebrates the unlimited opportunities to harness Twitter👉🏽 Image
Like the #SolarEclipse that occurred in August 2017, to me, Twitter has been a community wide experience of marveling a visual process that can create a burst of awe at an organic velocity. It's really exciting to be engaged in this global experience. Image
#AcademicTwitter is using Twitter at the University and Research setting to teach. It has wide range benefits and I recommend reading the following article written by @soragnilab and @Aiims1742 published in @nature that describes this phenomenon.… ImageImage

I am so frustrated with the misogyny that is getting perpetuated.

Reported to me by an immigrant guy - who is assimilating to norms - on what is common in a neurosurgery resident office:

Talking about girlfriends’ “b**bs” front of female PAs and med students
Describing women with multiple sexual partners as “human gutters”

U.S. professors, tell him the law has become “gynocentric”

that men need to be afraid and are falsely accused

@TIMESUPHC @choo_ek @janevandis @arghavan_salles

Why #HeforShe matters

Let’s even set aside outrage for a sec

How can you speak of women as “human gutters”, discuss your girlfriend’s “b**bs” at work in front of female med students and PAs

AND claim you are oppressed and need to be scared?

You *are still* openly engaging in sexual harassment

@RThienprayoon's tweet about this award resonated with me, though perhaps for different reasons. Like her, I had a tough early career step in #hpm #hapc. The first program chief my hospital had ever had, but isolated from a collegial network and with little local support. 1/7
Add in a late start to fellowship, and then 2 years of #miscarriage, #recurrentpregnancyloss and secondary #infertility. Those experiences made me a much better person/doctor/leader/human being, but let's be honest, weren't great for my early career leadership development. 2/7
Early #workingmomlife was a blur of hard work, sleep deprivation, disenfranchised grief, and lessons learned. The transformation was happening, but I couldn't see it. Not until I landed in a more supportive environment. #womeninmedicine 3/7

Some selected highlights from a wonderful talk on diversity in medicine from the great @DrQuinnCapers4.

First: we have been calling for diversity in medicine for decades and haven’t been able to move the needle.

(A thread)

There is a leaky pipeline. We lose URMs at a number of spots. The biggest determinant of premed students changing their major was chemistry.

As a former chemistry TA, we can do better than this.

There are real, unconscionable health consequences to lack of diversity.

-women less likely than men to receive AICD when indicated
-black and Hispanic patients less likely to get revascularization (more likely to get amputation) for lower extremity PVD

Over the past couple of days, a lot of young people have sought my opinion on the sad issue about the alleged rape case involving the senior pastor of COZA. Here's my opinion. A thread. #ChurchToo #ProtectNotRape #IStandWithTheTruth
I have tried very hard to contain my conflicting emotions between my stand against any form of abuse, especially against the female gender, -which informed my joining the #HeForShe Movement-, and my understanding of the church as a spiritual entity./1
This is more so as the social media opens up the space for all manner and shades of opinions to the end that innocent young people are easily misled. If this rape accusation had to do with just an ordinary individual, it would have been easier./2

I'm giving a keynote on gender bias in medicine.

I want to tell 30 stories. What's yours?

Give me a personal anecdote to share.

Stand up and be seen. It will make the world a better place.

Thank you. 🙏🏻

#WomenInMedicine #HeForShe #MedTwitter Image
Amazing and overwhelming responses - thank you! Especially appreciate hearing stories of bias from both men and women, and the complexities of age, physical appearance, race, etc factoring in as well. Please keep sharing.

Such a treat to be at @feminemtweets #Revive19 listening to @PEAKMD talk about coaching. Definitely an amazing female physician leader who is experienced and wisdom in this area. Check out this thread if you are interested in finding out more.
Coaching is different from mentorship.
Executive coaching comes from a place that empowers the person being coached - they have the answer. This is different from teaching (giving you more knowledge), mentor (a guide that nudges), and a coach (who helps you actualize things).
Teaching is more about pushing (being directive).

Mentoring is more about feedback, offering guidance.

Coaching provokes reflection, understanding, paraphrasing, summarizing. Pulls you towards the answers inside of you.

It's a spectrum.

1/ #medtwitter if you care about #metoostem #meded #equity #burnout please follow along. Gender violence is pervasive in medical training.

#sciencetoo #meded #medtwitter #medtoo #timesup #beethical #heforshe #timesup
2/ “…we may hear and intimately know the experiences of gender violence, but we are unable to share. Our voices are trapped and silenced, exacerbated by the hierarchical and apprentice-based training environment.."
3/ Over 50% of medical students experience sexual harassment from faculty and staff. The people who are entrusted to teach us how to be physicians.
