Redefining traditional gender roles and the importance of a growth mindset

“Maybe it’s a testament to a hardy relationship that there was no resulting argument. Without thinking, I blurted out, ‘You are so sexist!’ I could immediately tell by my husband’s face, his upper eyelids and eyebrows lifted a bit, his mouth freeze-framed in a small ‘o’ — my exclamation surprised and insulted him.

Christine J. Ko is a dermatopathologist.

She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “Confession from a female doctor: I am sexist.” (https://www.kevinmd.com/blog/2021/06/confession-from-a-female-doctor-i-am-sexist.html)
