Text ExtractionDespite the many roles we have to play, female surgeons “are making it”. Leaving the OR we are wives, mothers, daughters, we are often the support of our families and go arrive home only to carry on.
I have lived and overcome all these situations, with more than three decades as a woman and a surgeon, above all, current and active. From the operating room to the court, the symposium, the congress, home, and back to the operating room. This editorial comes from my accumulated experience as a woman from my time as a resident, very far from the idea of equity that now, fortunately, is increasingly accepted. My history as a surgeon and my history as a woman is not dissectable, it is inseparable.
