Doctors, nurses, firefighters and other shift workers know all about the effects of wonky sleep.

Twitter/ilovepathology Female medical professionals are taking to social media to express their thoughts after a sexist opinion piece published this past weekend blamed the U.K.’s healthcare problems on, you guessed it, women doctors.
