    EMOTIONAL FEMALE

    Book ID/图书代码: 03540021C00022

    English Summary/英文概要: Yumiko Kadota was every Asian parent’s dream: model student, top of her class in medical school and on track to becoming a surgeon. A self-confessed workaholic, she regularly put ‘knife before life’, knowing it was all going to be worth it because it would lead to her longed-for career.
    But if the punishing hours in surgery weren’t hard enough, she also faced challenges as a young female surgeon navigating a male-dominated specialty. She was regularly left to carry out complex procedures without senior surgeons’ oversight; she was called all sorts of things, from ‘emotional’ to ‘too confident’; and she was expected to work a relentless on-call roster – sometimes seventy hours a week or more – to prove herself.
    Eventually it was too much and Yumiko quit.
    Emotional Female is her account of what it was like to train in the Australian public hospital system, and what made her walk away.
    Yumiko Kadota is a voice for her generation when it comes to burnout and finding the resilience to rebuild after suffering a physical, emotional and existential breakdown. This is a brave, honest and unflinching work from a major new talent.

    Chinese Summary/中文概要: Yumiko Kadota是每個亞洲父母的夢想:模範生,是醫學院的佼佼者,並有望成為一名外科醫生。她自認是工作狂,犧牲自己的生活,因為知道這一切都是值得的,目的她將達成渴望的職業。終於她完成學業,成為實習醫生,沒想到這竟是惡夢的開始,面連醫院的剝削,職場的霸凌及歧視,長時間的工作待命,終於她精疲力盡崩潰了…
    此書將由她自述如何從身心創傷後重新找回自己,並揭發澳洲的實習醫生培訓的不平等及種族性別歧視等問題。(Vincent)

    Awards/获奖情况:Brave. Honest. Impossibly compelling. JAMILA RIZVI
    There is a powerful sense of immediacy to Kadota’s writing. We share her thrill at participating in her first surgery, the gratitude of her patients, the confrontation of her first death certification and the chilling moment where she considers self-harm just so she can get some rest ... It is a privilege to review this book. Emotional Female is a brave memoir where the author doesn’t hold back from sharing her most vulnerable moments. If this doesn’t end up in my top three reads of this year I will be surprised. AMANDA RAYNER, READINGS
    This is an honest and unflinching memoir that is a personal exploration of how zeal, intelligence, passion and skill counts for nothing when faced with a broken medical system. It explores how bullying, racism and sexism can flourish unchecked and how promising surgeons are treated as disposable. Essential reading!
    SHANULISA PRASAD, BOOKTOPIA
    The pressure building over time only intensifies the acute emotional punch as Kadota measures the human cost of her once dream career.
    AMY DALE, LAW SOCIETY JOURNAL
    Is it the book of the year? We’d back that. This brilliant read is an absolute must for anyone this year and tales the toxic culture of bullying and overwork that junior doctors can experience in the workplace as part of their training (hint: it’s not pretty) ... a true account of burnout and finding resilience to rebuild yourself after suffering physical, emotional and existential breakdowns. We take out hats off to Yumiko for sharing her story. URBAN LIST
    A searing indictment of the sexism, racism and institutional exploitation present in the Australian medical profession ... her greatest writing strength [is] meticulous and unapologetic attention to the details of events others may deem isolated ... We need to celebrate the emotional intelligence and courage of women of colour in every industry and profession, especially when they are brave enough to call out unacceptable sexist, racist and exploitative behaviour just as Kadota has so powerfully done.
