nurse-1490637001R9I.jpg?profile=RESIZE_710xWomen make up 90% of all nurses, but less than a third of senior positions. This deep-rooted gender inequality must change

When I talk to nurses about their jobs, as I do constantly, they tell me about the pressures of working with too few staff, and about how it hurts not be able to provide the level of care they would like. We talk about why things have got to this, and chances are they will say something along the lines of: “They wouldn’t treat other professions this badly.” Usually the other professions they are thinking of are dominated by men.
