Abstract

This month’s issue begins with a qualitative study conducted by a team of researchers from the University of Rochester’s Department of Family Medicine. This team, led by Holly Russell, MD, MS, explored barriers and facilitators to reporting and responding to gender discrimination and sexual harassment within their own department. This was brave, and inspiring, and—as it was done extremely well—also lays out an educational roadmap for those moved to replicate this important work. The women editors of Family Medicine collaborated on this editorial, after recognizing the strength of shared narrative highlighted by this study. The italicized quotes that follow are reflections from this team.
