A senior obstetrician is under fire over comments he’s made that the upswing in female doctors makes the medical profession more “vulnerable”, as women are less able to cope with “everyday nastiness”.

Nepean Hospital obstetrician Professor Hans Peter Dietz is in hot water over remarks he reportedly made in emails sent to 35 colleagues at the Australian Salaried Medical Officers Federation (ASMOF) (NSW).
