Other female doctors told of having bums and thighs fondled and being asked at seminars “what their husbands think of them being away”.
Two male docs were heard guessing a workpal’s bra size.
Dr Katie Bramall-Stainer, of Hoddesdon, Herts, said a man muttered “naughty girl” and “little girl” as she walked to a stage to host a talk.
She and colleague Dr Zoe Norris blasted the “harassment and culture of institutional sexism” at the BMA’s 77-strong GP Committee.

Yorkshire-based Dr Norris called the BMA an “old boys’ club” with sexism there an “open secret”.

She added: “Women are afraid to speak up for fear of repercussions.”
