Re:Gender works to end gender inequity and discrimination against girls and women by exposing root causes and advancing research-informed action. Working with multiple sectors and disciplines, we are shaping a world that demands fairness across difference.

This same silence continues to perpetuate a culture that is inhospitable to the retention of women in academic medicine.
