Plans and needs[edit]

Plans and needs for the article

  • History of laws and trends around the world restriction women's access to medical education and working as medical professionals; pathbreaking women physicians Yoshioka Yayoi, Elizabeth Blackwell, etc.)
  • Women working in allied health professions; traditional female practices of medicine (midwifery)
  • Sociology within modern-day medical professions: glass ceiling for management; specialty distinctions (surgery versus family practice)
  • Restrictions on male/female relations with patients (for example, religious restrictions affecting women's access to male patients and male access to female patients; this has a significant impact on healthcare for women where women's access to medical professions is limited)
  • women's medical education - struggle to get into medical colleges; setting up separate women's medical colleges

Other ideas? --Lquilter (talk) 22:00, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

I'd prefer if the historical information be moved into History of women in medicine and the current information (from Women in medicine and Men in nursing) be moved into Gender disparities in medicine. JCDenton2052 (talk) 11:49, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

I find this article highly US-centric, particularly the section reflecting 20th century experiences. Also, the ground-breaking struggles and achievements of women in the 19th century in entering medicine (notably in the UK) is utterly lacking with, again, the exception of the American Blackwell. Not a balanced picture and not up to Wikipedia's usual standards. Englishbriar (talk) 03:16, 6 February 2014 (UTC)

Possible link to "Women in Medicine" items on “Himetop – The History of medicine topographical database”[edit]

I suggest that somebody, interested in this page, could insert an external link to the following page describing, with pictures, some notable "women in medicine"’s memories: http://himetop.wikidot.com/system:page-tags/tag/women-in-medicine


I don’t do it myself because I’m also an Administrator of this site (Himetop) and it could be a violation of the Wikipedia Conflict of Interest policy. Thanks for your attention.

- need help with coding issue - added Reflist template but message at very bottom of page still appears asking for Reflist tag to be placed. Thanks. - AnakngAraw (talk) 19:17, 10 November 2013 (UTC)

The problem was that the page had a <ref></ref> tag after the {{reflist}}, in the external links section. The reflist only looks for tags before it in the article, not after. I removed the tag, and the problem is fixed. Howicus (Did I mess up?) 19:23, 10 November 2013 (UTC)
