Podcast: Girls Rule the Vet World - Facing Gender Issues in the Veterinary Profession

Host veterinarians Ernie Ward and Cyndie Courtney along with registered veterinary technician Beckie Mossor ponder gender inequality in the veterinary profession. Today an estimated 70% of veterinarians and  95% of support staff are females. Is this too much? Why has this occurred? Why are women veterinarians and medical doctors paid less than their male counterparts? What about maternity and paternity pay? Do pet owners have more confidence in male veterinarians? Why are strong female leaders viewed as "b&*^%$" ? These questions and more in this week's episode. Join the conversation on Facebook/Veterinary Viewfinder and Twitter @VetViewfinder.
