Woman Gets Angry As Flight Attendant Called Her Miss Not Doctor. Twitterati Slams Her

We often say, “what’s in the words and one must understand the feelings” but the wrong use of words at a wrong place creates a lot of problems sometimes.

Something similar happened recently as an Australia based doctor living in the UK objected to the way a flight attendant referred to her.

The flight attendant used the word “Miss” for her and she had a problem with it because she’s a PhD and wants everyone to use the title “Doctor” instead.

Dr Siobhan O’Dwyer took to Twitter and wrote-

Hey @Qantas, my name is Dr O’Dwyer. My ticket says Dr O’Dwyer. Do not look at my ticket, look at me, look back at my ticket, decide it’s a typo, and call me Miss O’Dwyer. I did not spend 8 years at university to be called Miss.

Her tweet received mostly negative response from Twitterati. There were some who supported her mostly couldn’t relate to her and criticised her for the tweet. Have a look at some reactions-

Dr Siobhan O’Dwyer tweeted again-

Copping so much flack for this tweet. This was not about my ego. It was about highlighting one of a thousand instances of sexism that women encounter every day. It’s not about the title, it’s about the fact that this wouldn’t have happened if I was a man.

Do you think her anger is justified?
