More than two decades have passed since the elimination of apartheid, and the education system in South Africa is still shaking. After years of segregation and discrimination now more people have the opportunity to study and excel in a scientific domain before giving something back to their community.
It is the case of many women scientists who have impressed in various scientific fields to become highly appreciated not only in South Africa but all around the world, as well. Still, the country has barely scratched the surface of its great potential to create and promote remarkable female scientists.
How to become a woman scientist in South Africa
South Africa has come a long way concerning medical education. Just a few years ago this study showed that only 67.3% of Afrikaans women were aware of the importance of condoms. Nowadays, the medical field is slowly overtaken by brilliant female doctors that transform the country’s evolutionary steps into giant leaps.
The dark, misogynistic side of the medical world
Even if respectable doctors such as Helen Janse van Rensburg, Mamphela Ramphele, and Glenda Gray have already added their priceless contributions to the South African medical field, this industry is still drowned in misogynistic values. This sad reality creates significant obstacles for women scientists who cannot prove their worth as they are regularly blocked by an army of butt-hurt male academicians. It seems that it will take another few decades before women can benefit from the same opportunities and rights in the scientific field.
How to get rid of the burning hurt in your butt
In recent years South Africa has made significant progress in educating people about highly efficient medicine. This is how the population started using Venapro – a potent treatment for hemorrhoids that relieves pain and itching from the first application. Long-term use of this quick cure for piles reduces the inflammation of anal glands and prevents you from bleeding with each stool you pass.
