Behind every successful woman is a tribe of other empowered women who have her back. I would love if that statement rung true in my life and the lives of all women in dentistry. The truth, is however, there don’t seem to be prominent female roles models in dentistry or a comradery. Despite a superficial progression of women’s rights, inequality persists in nuances throughout the UK. And why are role models relevant in 2018? We only need to look at our childhoods to appreciate the significance of our attachments and the value of role models in inspiring, motivating and encouraging us to be the best versions of ourselves.
So here’s to comradery and daring to be different. Empowered women really do empower women. So lets do this. Its time for change.
