Burnout from Gender Inequity in a Pandemic.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

Unfortunately, the pandemic exposed and expanded the imbalances associated with gender, placing women anesthesiologists as both primary caregivers in the home and on the frontlines of health care.

Several initiatives that can improve well-being and the work culture for all anesthesiologists, including women, will also be discussed.
