TO THE EDITOR:
Thank you for shining this light. As a family physician, I hear stories weekly of physicians who discount the lived experiences of women. Reading Laine and colleagues' editorial (1) and the anonymous article (2), I am inspired to reflect also on my own practice, now and in the past, and to pledge to do better, to listen more deeply, to honor all stories, but especially to find room in my heart to understand those who live their lives differently than I do, who make choices I would not, to see myself in “others” and “those people.” We can do better. This will help. Thank you.
