*(Gender Inequity) Women in Health Research
(NEW) 2020 – (Sample Cards | Download game and rules* | Purchase)…
This deck, hosted by the Michael Smith Laboratories, is a STARTER deck for a hand building game that looks at the challenges in gender inequity from a health perspective. This includes topics that look at societal elements as well as those with a medical angle. This deck is a stand alone game, and was designed to showcase a more authentic and therefore more thought provoking take at diversity issues.
*Note that the game is played in similar fashion to the Phylo GSA deck and the Phylo WWEST WISE deck (see game play here), except that there is an addition of a mechanic that divides negative cards from positive cards (see downloadable rules above for more details).
A study* on harassment experiences when conducting research in the field showed that 71% of women experienced harassment, and that 26% experienced assault.
Research* has found that when compared to males, females take longer to clear this insomnia drug from their system. This commonly resulted in next-morning impairment, affecting activities like driving due to drowsiness. This was discovered after the drug went to market due to underrepresentation of female subjects during various drug testing phases.
Women have blazed this trail before you, and many of them want to help others succeed.
