[Comment] Women making medical history: introducing A Woman’s Place

In December, 2017, The Lancet issued a call for papers for its special theme issue on women in science, medicine, and global health.1 The Comment outlined the gender inequalities in medicine that still persist, long after many overt barriers to women’s participation have fallen.
