Stigma in Certain Professions | ZAPFIC MONDAY | (1/30/22) | Prompt: introduce
Certain professions are dominated by males or females. I know that many years ago, I was skeptical of women doctors and male nurses. Those professions were typically dominated by the men as doctors and women as nurses or caregivers. It's truly a mindset on how we view people. I share a ZAPFIC Monday challenge for this week's prompt "introduce".
My story is below:
Villagers stood in line waiting for the new doctor.
"Let me introduce you to our new physician," said retired doctor.
Laughter and derision broke out as a young lady in white emerged from the tent.
Women with kids remained for aid.
I leave here the screenshot evidencing the 240-character limit for my story:

Men and women have their own interests and abilities, They both can help each other in their professions but can't replace them.
Every human being has a quality that cannot be found in any other human being due to which they are recognized in this world as doctors who work hard and help each other. No matter how much the other person tries, he cannot take the place of someone. We should all help each other in bad times.
I'm disappointed in the men, we all have our unique ways of doing things. The fact that the new physician is a female doesn't mean she can't be a professional.
Nice short story mate
Thanks. I'm a female also, so I understand trying to pave your way into a predominately male profession.
Thanks for your visit and kind words. I appreciate your support.
You are most welcome friend
Introduction Make a great start in everything, great piece.
So many things has happened in society since then that women prefer to have women as their doctor & men are just stuck in the way things were. This is a very good story of how things are changing.
