Iris Young's Five Faces of Oppression Applied to Nursing.
ABSTRACT To explore Iris Young's Five Faces of Oppression as a framework for understanding oppression of nurses.
Nursing's gendered status is implicated in nursing's status as a profession. Young's framework clearly lays out the ways in which nurses are oppressed in today's healthcare system.
Understanding the structure of nursing's oppression allows nursing to begin to formulate a thoughtful response to oppression and helps nursing find its voice in the larger world of the healthcare system.
