Doctor who slammed Qantas Airways for calling her 'Miss' sparks vicious Twitter backlash

A Ph.D. recipient who slammed Qantas Airways on social media for referring to her as “Miss,” instead of “Doctor,” is receiving major backlash on Twitter — a response she calls evidence of “everyday sexism.”

Dr. Siobhan O’Dwyer holds a Ph.D. in Philosophy, a title she said was overlooked intentionally by a flight attendant.

Dr. O’Dwyer called the response a version of sexism that she often encounters.
