Though they are holders of bachelor-level degrees, history has allowed the use of the title doctor by physicians, however, it is recognised that it is in essence an honorary or courtesy title. ..... Australia and New Zealand use the titles of Mr and Doctor, in the same way as the United Kingdom."
Yup, looks pretty much right. That's what all women looks like in Sweden. Right @EFV @Anden?
