The Medical Women’s Federation (MWF) recently announced the launch of Honorary Membership to recognise doctors who have demonstrated a unique ability to transfer the MWF vision into living action. This new development is in line with the MWF president Dr Henrietta Bowden – Jones mission to bring the vision for MWF into the more modern and inclusive medical world we now live in.
For the first time in 102 years, both male and female colleagues have been appointed by MWF to become Honorary Members. We will like to take this opportunity to congratulate our new Honorary members on their work and all they have achieved. The recipients of the award were formally recognised at the joint MWF and BMA Autumn Conference ‘Working Together: Overcoming Gender Bias in Medicine’ at BMA House in London on Friday 1st November 2019.
