icons reinforce traditional gender roles#367


I’m trying to build a patient journey map and am disappointed to see that you don’t offer gender neutral icons and that the “doctor” icons are male and the “nurse” icons are female. The “nurse” is clearly wearing nurse scrubs and the “doctor” is clearly wearing a physician lab coat. There are plenty of gender neutral icons that could be used in place of these.
