Abstract

The author presents data about the number and percentage of women in medicine, along with their motivations for entering this profession. She also gives recent data about women in psychiatry: their number, areas of specialization, work settings, hours worked a week, etc. After presenting views of the stereotype of the woman physician-psychiatrist and pointing out some of the myths that have been perpetuated, she concludes with the observation that only by working together in the spirit of mutually respectful inquiry can men and women correct the mythologic errors and enlighten one another.
