The Lancet recently published a #LancetWomen theme issue that explores the institutional and systemic barriers women face in science, medicine, and global health. I was greeted at the New York launch event at Columbia University in early February by a room full of familiar faces, champions of gender equality and women’s empowerment. They were women I’d seen in attendance and heard speak at other events, such as the Women Leaders in Global Health Conference that was held last November in London. It was a room to be reckoned with.
