Abstract

To the Editor: This past fall I wrote a letter commenting on the fact that American medicine is male dominated. Most grant reviewers, journal editors, university faculty members, and medical-society officers are men. It is not particularly encouraging that Dr. Navarro, in his Special Article, “Women in Health Care” (N Engl J Med 292:398–402, 1975), raised this obvious point since his solution to the problem is incorporation of lower and lower-middle classes of medical producers (usually women) into decision-making policy boards. I agree that these women should have a larger voice in shaping their careers. However, their influence in this. . .
