The Gender Unicorn: is medicine sexist?

Is there sexism in medicine? Large gender gaps in research limit how much we know about the difference between women’s health and men’s. The so-called “pink tax” that affects millions of young women on any given day— or the additional costs women pay for everyday products – isn’t just limited to tampons and razors. Research shows that women, per capita, pay more than men for their healthcare and are often taken less seriously when it comes to pain. Policies requiring the inclusion of women and minorities have brought some change, but what can we do to further close this gender gap?
