Updated glossary of terms on gender bias

In The BMJ Christmas issue, Esther K Choo (Oregon Health and Science University, USA) and Robert F DeMayo (VA Portland Health Care System, USA) give us additions to the glossary of terms to describe gender bias in academia and medicine. These additions extend beyond the well-known ‘mansplaining’ and ‘himpathy’, offering us “feternity leave: when becoming a mother is conflated with choosing to forsake the practice of medicine (also known as What They Suspect When You’re Expecting)”, “ova-looked: when a woman is bypassed for an opportunity even though she is eminently qualified”, and “maper: an academic journal article with no female authors and an uncomfortable number of male authors”.
