Gender And Veterinary Medicine

Animal-lovers, take note: sexism in veterinary schools is waning, but could still affect the decisions of young people hoping to become veterinarians. I found this blog post on gender inequality in veterinary medicine fascinating, and I’m hoping the author’s plea for more compassionate people to become vets–regardless of gender–reaches future vet students.
