A request to debate (why USA should have monopoly). Those who are not aware, ISHRS (so called International society) was and to a large extent remains dominated by USA and is often USA centric.
To say that it is because advances were all made in USA is a fallacy.
They were not.
How many of the total meetings of conference were held in USA? Were any ever held in China, Japan, India etc.?
Why should any member of ishrs have to face the humilation of having to settle for ABHRS (american board of hair restoration) when it should have been IBHRS (International board of hair restoration).
How many of the key positions in the governing board or council are non Caucasian?
The fault may also lie with the members of other nations that they never asserted their rights and indeed the old boy’s club was thus formed with important posts doing a merry go round among select people.
There are more questions and there is need to change this status quo to make it more equitable.
Looking forward to any constructive suggestions on how these societies can be made more just and equitable (right now its like the security council of UN with veto rights in hand of a select few for infinity).
