Women versus the Medical Profession

The number of doctors getting charged with "Disgraceful Conduct" or similar for behaving inappropriately with their female patients sems to be increasing. Locally, e.g. there have been 3 losses of licence, and one got 6 years [ for using vibrators during pelvic exams.] It is also said that some women encourage such events. Presumably the truth lies somewhere between. This poll seeks to estimate where it lies.
