“Words can have unintended consequences”: That is how Pinn framed the story she shared on Saturday. While a first-year medical student at UVA in 1963, a classmate made a racist, sexist remark to Pinn, the only woman and minority in the class. “He said to me, ‘Vivian, you have no place being here. You’re just taking the place some man should have.’” He went on to say that women have smaller brains than men and there was no way she would graduate from UVA. She did. He did not. Listen to her explain how those remarks lit a fire in Pinn’s belly that advanced health care for women.
