Panelist: Dr. Ayesha Masood
Where: LUMS

In this talk, Dr. Ayesha Masood explores the historical trends underlying the feminization of medicine in Pakistan, their implications for the organization of medical profession and the place of women physicians in the Pakistani medical workforce. While there has been extensive research on how modern medicine created a paradigmatic hegemony of knowledge and power within modern medicine, often at the expense of local medical knowledge and practices, there is still a limited understanding of how this experience of colonization impacts the place of women in medical profession, particularly in developing countries.
