Editor:

I would like to thank Dr. Sandra Scott Simons for her commentary on being a young-ish female emergency physician. (ER Goddess: “Yes, I'm Really the Doctor,” EMN 2015;37[12]:8; http://emn.online/Dec15ERGoddess.)

I experience exactly what she described on a daily basis. I am glad to see that it is being discussed because clearly the gender bias is persisting even in 2015. Kudos for getting it out in the open.
