Nursing is one of the oldest occupations in history, however its historys youngest profession (Weberg, et al., 2019).Since the time of Florence Nightingale, nursing has grown as a profession that is well versed in evidence based practice, uncompromising standards and ethics (Weberg, et al., 2019). Currently women make up 70% of the healthcare workforce and they only hold 25% of senior roles (WHO, 2019). The WHO, (2019) describes several reasons for this, occupational segregation, gender pay gaps, gendered leadership gaps, and discrimination sexual harassment bias. Many countries do not have laws or social protection for gender equality at work as well as equal pay laws (WHO, 2019). The correlation why women make up the majority of the nursing work force and only few serve in senior roles is astounding. Gender pay gaps (GPG) in health are 26% higher than that of other sectors. GPG leads to a lifetime of economic disadvantage (WHP, 2019 p.2). From this review, 170 studies found that there is significant data that supports gender inequality in the health care setting. Majors gaps in implementation of policy changes or gender transformation methodologies for different cultures (WHO, 2019). After reading the WHO, (2019) a gender and equity analysis of the global health and social workforce, personally, I am shocked this is still going on in 2021.
