Cincinnati women proclaim #ILookLikeASurgeon

A recent article in The New Yorker featuring four female members of a surgical team gazing down over a patient on an operating table led to a female surgeon in Wisconsin challenging others to replicate the image in real life.

The goal is to bring visibility to women and other minority groups in a traditionally male dominated field.

Female surgeons from the around the world are now participating.

Cincinnati Children’s has 16 female surgeons and more surgeons-in-training currently.

Those who have the time are responding to the challenge by taking photographs to share with the hashtag #NYerORCoverChallenge and #ILookLikeASurgeon.
