Dr. Jill Biden is a Doctor: An Intersectional Conversation
On December 11, 2020, an Opinion article was published in the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) titled, “Is There a Doctor in the White House? Not if You Need an M.D.” Writer Joseph Epstein requested that Dr. Jill Biden drop the prefix “Dr.” because not only does it sound fraudulent, but comedic as well. In a mere eight paragraphs, hurt was created. And yet, an outpouring of support followed. This blog provides an opportunity to process your own experience while holding space for an intersectional conversation.
