Medtech's Misogyny Problem

There are no female innovators in the medical device industry.

That’s what industry professionals told us when we recently asked for nominations of women researchers, engineers, and designers driving innovation in the field.

It seemed like a relatively innocuous question to ask the medtech community, but we received a slew of surprisingly snarky and sexist comments, including a chorus of "there are none" and "are you going to provide some training for them?" That members of our educated, professional community were compelled to go out of their way to mock women is disappointing and, frankly, embarrassing.

Is this a general tendency?
