An appreciation

Dear Shaukat Sahib,

As I received the latest copy of PULSE International, started reading it, like always one gets so absorb as it carries very interesting and useful information. In my view no other publication from Pakistan covers such a wide spectrum of news, articles and reports from the medical sciences. I thought I must congratulate you for such a nice issue.

It was good to read about and good see a former colleague Professor Zahid Bashir in the group photo with the Johns Hopkins team. Wonderful! My best wishes are with you and your team.

Women Empowerment or Feminism:
Facts and Myths about Feminization
of Medical Education

Thank you for sharing such an interesting piece of write-up Editorial on Feminization of Medical Education published in March-April 2020 issue of Pakistan Journal of Medical Sciences. The topic has always been so near to my heart. I am glad Prof. Lubna Baig raised the voice over this issue on behalf of all females.

However, I am afraid, despite admissions with open merit, there is issues with female leadership positions. The stigma of male dominance prevails and sadly, the female gender also approve of it in some specialties. There is a dire need to change the mindset of public and doctors in general.
