We call you to action to share your #MeTooInMedicine story.
Last year, my colleagues and I organized a first-ever storytelling event at UCSF about gender inequities in healthcare. In response to the immense support and need, we have been growing this project and are now accepting story submissions again until further notice. Stories submitted by July 13, 2020 will receive priority in consideration for production into an animated short film.
We define #MeTooInMedicine broadly — we welcome anonymous stories about gender-based discrimination, harm, and allyship from people of all genders and from all sectors of healthcare. We seek to highlight intersectionality because we know that we cannot end gender inequity without eliminating all sources of oppression (i.e. racism, heterosexism, ageism, etc.).
We will center survivors in a conference dedicated to promoting both transparency about and elimination of gender-based violence within medicine. This event will likely be virtual and the date forthcoming. Stories accompanied by an animated film will be included in a series to be released in Spring 2021.
We thank you for your participation and courage.
