Former Emergency Physician Exposes Gender Bias in Medical Field in New...

Pandora B. Angel, MD, was a practicing physician for 30 years. She spent 23 of those years as an emergency physician at a university medical center and an affiliated hospital. In her new book “Elusive Equity, Empathy, and Empowerment: One Woman’s Journey through the Challenges of Gender Bias in the Early Twenty-First Century” (published by Archway Press), Angel shares the challenges she faced as a female emergency physician. The book is available for purchase at:

Exploring what she describes as a persistence of inequity in the workplace, Angel offers a woman’s perspective in “what is still perceived as a male profession” through a series of vignettes, lessons and appendices. Angel provides an analytical critique of American culture at large, and argues that her experiences in the medical field are indicative of what is a larger, systemic abuse of power.

“Women want diverse, moral leadership and decision-making bodies,” says Angel, adding that she hopes to inspire readers to work toward impacting change. “Action is required to promote understanding and legislate equality for all citizens.”
