The Finale It was on April 18th that I had my third, and final, interview. The doctor that I interviewed was Dr. Anita Kulkarni, of the Santa Clara Emergency Room. Dr. Kulkarni and I got along well, talking about the hardships of being an Emergency Doctor, especially a female doctor, the goodness in the career, and the relationships that goes into the career. The doctor and I, however, had been conversing for some time before the interview was actually held. The two of us could not find a time where we could both meet, but thanks to my kind teacher, I was able to get an extension and hold this interview.

The doctor was interested in the question I had asked, replying, “Male doctors treat patients differently than Female doctors do, and sometimes the patients may want a doctor of a different gender treating them...The discrimination can even be seen between employees since some of the nurses get jealous and say bad things about the new, female, doctors…Patients also treat pregnant female doctors differently, sometimes acting harsher than usual… The discrimination is there but I believe there is now very little of it” (Kulkarni Personal Interview). Females in modern times still are discriminated against, although there are few signs of it. The worst discrimination a female can feel today is rumors spreading about them and forced submission. As generations continue to become more accepting the discrimination women feel today will become
