Dentistry & feminism

Women face real obstacles within dentistry, from blatant to subtle discrimination and sexism. I’ve had male principals ask me countless times if I’m planning on getting married and having kids soon despite the illegality of such questioning.

How do we overcome the barriers that prevent women progressing? How do we get more women leading conferences and talks? How do we get more women in power? All important questions. The answer in my mind, is that it comes back to you. Raising your own voice so that other women’s can be heard also.
