Summary

Women entering psychiatry or other health care professions face challenges their male counterparts do not. In Women in Psychiatry: Personal Perspectives, 21 female leaders in psychiatric medicine trace the paths they followed to enter and excel in this profession. The book is a testimony to the progress women have made in the field of psychiatry, especially since the feminist movement began in the 1970s. The stories of these accomplished women are frankly presented and illustrate strategies they have used to balance their private and professional lives and to overcome barriers to their development as women professionals in medical careers. Women in Psychiatry clearly demonstrates where an interest in science or medicine can lead when combined with determination, guidance, experience, mentoring, perseverance, and organizational support. The featured women represent diverse backgrounds, ethnicities, positions, career pathways, and accomplishments. Each of their stories is unique. This book offers not only fascinating insights into leadership and achievement, but also inspiration and must-read practical guidance to anyone interested in a similar career. Book jacket.
