1/This article highlights an urgent need for training faculty and administrators on issues related to gender violence and discrimination in #meded. We have five concerns with the article. #metoo #meded #womeninmedicine #sheforshe #heforshe @caroline_a_king @womeninmedchat
2/ Title IX. This article is missing information about federally mandated reporting processes and protections that legally protect medical students (and all students in the U.S.).
3/Anecdotal beliefs perpetuate harms. A physician expert states โ€œthe trainee must amass allies before lodging this complaintโ€ฆโ€ This is legally incorrect, a single report is enough to trigger Title IX and this reinforces the notion that single reports will not be believed.

#FridayNightMusings
The end of my week involves reflecting on my week and what I've learned from my experiences & conversations with others. Topics in my awareness are gender inequality in medicine, physician burnout, abuse in healthcare & sharing/oversharing our stories 1/
There are those here who strive to inspire peers, provide a space for connection & rally for change through the various discussion threads. It's clear to me that there's a lot of passion & desire to do great things in the world by those who I follow/see in my feed. 2/
I can also feel the collective frustration/anger/angst/sadness/resignation/sympathy/name that heavy emotion when any of our efforts aimed at success & liberation from system constraints appear to be blocked by injustice, abuse, ineffective strategy or poor communication. 3/

This weekend I watched #TheAvengersInfinityWar and it made me think of the fierce & diverse network of real-life heroes coming together to advance the careers of #WomenInMedicine
Theg all have different backgrounds and philosophies and approaches. At times they may even be at odds with one another...
But they all aim to elevate women in medicine. Period.

Here are some of them.

(NB: focusing on folks who have made it their *singular* mission to support women physicians)

This is my commentary on #twitter #movements. Before I go I want to preface this with a statement: I love humans. We're amazing creative & powerful beings. I'm fascinated by human behaviour and the hidden motivations underlying our basic need to belong. 1/
I've observed some movements taking off on Twitter. Some for #MedEd, raising awareness, knowledge sharing, inspiration and sharing failings, wounds & triumphs. Generally they support creative expression in 280 characters. Awesome! 2/
As these movements gain momentum, more people want to join in b/c #belonging. I'm seeing a disturbing trend of sharing experiences of patients/clients to promote how deep & human they are. Some are purely intended, some not. 3/

I have always enjoyed advocating for a largely underserved patient base and try to walk in their shoes to better understand and help care. Read this years ago and still reflecting. Investigative journalist attempts to work and live on minimum wage. amazon.com/gp/aw/d/031262โ€ฆ
Worth a quick read. This, in a way, enlighten my world view. Helped me understand better the barriers to care, the suffering, and much more of the very patients I serve each and every day. #compassion #WomenInMedicine ##advocacy #leadlikeawomen amazon.com/gp/aw/d/031262โ€ฆ
โ€œMillions work fulltime, year round, for poverty-level wages. Barbara Ehrenreich decided to join them, inspired by the rhetoric of welfare reform, which promised that a job -- any job -- can be the ticket to a better life. How does anyone survive, let alone prosper, on $6/hr?โ€
