Glasgow medical women 1951-4: their contribution and attitude to medical work

British Medical Journal
M C Timbury, M A Ratzer


A questionary sent to 137 women who qualified in Glasgow during 1951-4 showed that of the 106 respondents 24% of the married women were unemployed and only 31% were working full-time. The married women had fewer qualifications than a matched group of male contemporaries, and fewer of those in hospital work were consultants. The married women in full-time work had fewer children and showed some differences in their background compared with those working part-time or unemployed. Most part-time workers were satisfied with their present posts and did not wish to work more.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
