Interview with Nilda Soto on May 22, 2015, Segment 7

CENTRO: 100 Puerto Ricans Oral History Project, 2013-

Dr. Soto relates how difficult and competitive it was for her as a woman to study medicine, and she therefore felt that she had to study harder and longer hours. She expresses thoughts about how much easier it is for men to study in certain fields and gives the example of her own graduating class, in which the disparity in number of men completing the degree versus the women was great.
