Prominent veterinarian says men must be deliberate about promoting gender equality

Article here. Excerpt:

'Dr. Douglas G. Aspros takes the lack of female leadership in veterinary medicine personally.

Raised by a mother who worked most of her life as a teletype machine operator, educated at progressive New York institutions where male and female students were treated equally, and inspired by a female member of a Nobel Prize–winning research team, Dr. Aspros spent his early years unaware of gender bias.
Women have made up more than 50 percent of veterinary classes since 1986. They currently comprise 60 percent of the veterinary profession and 80 percent of veterinary students, according to Dr. Aspros. Yet the people at the highest levels of veterinary leadership are predominantly male.'


At veterinary colleges, male students are in the minority
