This day is an opportunity to promote full and equal access to—and participation in—science for women and girls. Nancy has worked with governments and organizations across Canada and internationally, offering creative thinking on complex issues such as the interconnections between substance use problems and the experience of trauma and intimate partner violence. Dedicated to connecting across distance, cultures, genders and sectors, Nancy is a catalyst for bringing knowledge to practice and policy, to promote equity.
Nancy Poole: The Sex and Gender Champion helps the research team achieve valid research findings that consider sex and gender issues throughout the research process. NP: When working in a shelter for women fleeing violence, I noticed that many women were being prescribed tranquillizers benzodiazepines more for social injustice issues than for diagnosed mental health concerns.
Their ability to think clearly and to make change in their lives was hampered by these drugs.
It started me on a path working with a famous researcher who was studying the over prescription of these medications, Dr. Ruth Cooperstock, and some knowledge exchange experts at Health Canada. This work inspired me to see the importance of research as an underpinning of health promotion with women. NP: My experience as a woman in research has changed in two ways.
Firstly, I have been fortunate to have many opportunities opened to me by brilliant mentors. Secondly, over time I have increasingly appreciated the importance of taking sex and gender into in health research, given how inadequately that has been done in the past. NP: To me it is important that we advance sex and gender science overall, and we integrate gender transformative approaches in all we do.
By gender transformative, I mean approaches that focus on improving gender equity as a route to improving health. NP: On the sex side, there are many ways in which physical and mental health issues associated with these disabilities are affected by genetics, anatomy, physiology, neurobiology, etc.
