Female doctors accused of using 'feminine wiles' to get ahead

Women doctors can also be workplace bullies and use their feminine wiles to get ahead, says a male surgeon who believes the bullying debate has unfairly targeted men.

In a written submission to the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons' inquiry into workplace bullying, SA surgeon Dr Randolph Williams said that while sexual harassment was unacceptable, he knew of female doctors “who have not hesitated in using their sexuality and feminine wiles attempting to gain advantage in the workplace”.
