Women changing the face of medical care
Across the Western world a generation of young women is transforming the once-male bastion of medicine, swelling medical schools and flocking to the front lines of primary care. They wear the stethoscopes and wield the scalpels in increasing numbers: women make up 54% of physicians below the age of 35 in Britain, 58% in France and almost 64% in Spain, according to the latest figures from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, which tracks the trend in more than 30 countries. As the world marks a century of International Women's Day on Tuesday, women in the medical field can pride themselves in having made huge strides.
