THE BIG QUESTION
The big question: does sexism still exist in nursing?
Nursing Times columnist Mark Radcliffe recently argued that because nursing remains a largely female profession, its political powerlessness is caused by sexism.
Mr Radcliffe feels there is “an insidious and deeply ingrained institutional sexism that prevents any form of real consultation, partnership or mining into the expertise of nurses”.
Are nurses poorly represented politically because of gender? Is it sexism that prevents nursing from having a voice? What do you think?
