In Israel, medicine is still a man's world
Prof. Rivka Carmi, president of Ben-Gurion University of the Negev and a medical doctor by training, says she became a feminist in the fourth month of pregnancy when she told her supervisor that she couldn’t accept a placement several months down the line because of her impending childbirth. She attributes both her feminist stance and the fact that she would end up with only one daughter to his response. “His reply was: ‘Just know that all your wonderful and ambitious career plans, even if they become fulfilled, won’t reach the extent and quality you intend for them,’” she recalls.
