1/29 Group 2 Discussion
Our group talked about the importance of feminism not just in medicine, but why its important to have equality between men, women and any other groups out there. Equality is very important to create equal and fair opportunities and treatment to everyone in society. More specifically in medicine, the feminist approach could give us doctors who show concern for a patient's situation mentally, physically and emotional. Physical health is not the only concern a doctor should be nudging to fix, as it is the entire health of a patient that matters. We also discussed the idea of gender roles possibly not disappearing from society as a whole. Sometimes double standards for the sexes won't go away, even when you're trying not to use them.
