A comment published in the September Dallas Medical Journal around gender pay gap has caused a viral storm, mostly targeted at the commentor.Β  In this emergency pod, Dara, Esther and Jane reframe that conversation and talk about salary inequity in medicine, the reason why beliefs are not the same and educated perspectives and what to do next time a comment like this goes viral.

We hope our conversation helps reframe this moment away from personal attacks towards meaningful progress.

Here is a previous FemInEM pod on the gender pay gap with the researchers at Doximity.
