In the online version of this Filler by Thomas A Pollak (BMJ 2013;346:f3756, doi:10.1136/bmj.f3756) there is a mistake in the fourth paragraph. The second sentence should have read: “The weight and influence of centuries of misogynistic theorising by an all-male medical establishment cannot be overestimated [not “underestimated,” as published].”
