Women in Interventional Radiology Suffer from Sexual Harassment

December 5th, 2018

Philadelphia sexual harassment lawyers are concerned about women in radiology & harassment.A recent survey is shedding new light on experiences of women in interventional radiology. It shows that gender bias runs rampant in this practice area, and that it affects women throughout their careers. The goal of the survey authors was to evaluate how gender influences a woman’s career in the field, and to create evidence-based interventions that could level the playing field for women.

The survey, which was comprised of 62 items, asked questions about marital and parental status, demographics, training experiences, career achievements and goals, and relationships with coworkers and patients. The authors looked for trends in pregnancy, gender bias, family life, career development, sexual harassment, and discrimination. They learned the following:

  • About 43 percent of respondents were discouraged from pursing their careers because of radiation exposure and family and lifestyle conflicts
  • About 91 percent had been mistaken for a nurse
  • About one-third of trainees and one-half of all respondents had experienced some type of discrimination
  • More than 50 percent of women said they were treated differently from their male colleagues, including partners, nurses, and technologists
  • Approximately 47 percent had experienced sexual harassment during practice
  • About 22 percent had experienced sexual harassment during training
  • Only 18 percent reported their experiences with sexual harassment

No one should have to deal with sexual harassment or gender discrimination in the workplace. When you are treated differently than your male colleagues, and when you lose opportunities because of your gender, we will advocate for your rights.
