"if they had the gumption"

I was chatting to a friend of mine just now in an Email about the high heid yins in Scotland's mental health world, the men in particular.

Talking of stronger voices and the narrowness of biological psychiatry, hierarchical shenanigans and interventionist approaches.  Bullying by another name.

To which I said:

"Yes they just won't risk their status or position. 

And yet if they did speak out then it would strengthen all of us and they would be the better off for doing it. 

A win win situation.  If they had the gumption."

"Hegemony is the geopolitical method of indirect imperial dominance, with which the hegemon (leader state) rules subordinate states, by the threat of intervention, an implied means of power, rather than by direct military force (that is, invasion, occupation, and annexation)."  Wikipedia
