The Secretary of State for Equality, Soledad Murillo, has demanded this Saturday at the University of Salamanca (USAL) that clinical trials "be done with men and women", since, fundamentally, they are done with them, and has also advocated "modernize medicine".
He has indicated in statements to journalists before participating in the II Conference on Feminism held in the Salamanca Study.
The Secretary of State has expressed concern about the so-called "discomfort effect" that is used in women, because, as noted, if men "came to the consultation with anxiety would give them something that does not disable them to work."
On the other hand, women "always apply stronger anxiolytics", so, in their opinion, "there is a perception of the disease that is much more fragile than that of a man".
After considering that "medicine has to be modernized" and that clinical trials should be done with men and women since, fundamentally, they are done with them, Murillo has lamented that the Sociology course is not taught in the Faculty of Medicine, that, in his opinion, "the environment explains many diseases".
She has maintained that thanks to the doctors there are very important advances and she has underlined that they are the ones who realize that losing a breast after a cancer "is a real disaster"; are those that "propose a reconstruction" or take into account hair loss.
Finally, she has considered that women's bodies "do not have the same meaning as men's" because they are asked to "always be in the best conditions", so they have shown their concern for the "medicalization of the body" ", and they are requested" an important income or property. "
