Summary

Elizabeth Blackwell was originally a teacher, but she didn't enjoy her profession, which was among the few career choices available to women during the 1840s. A visit to a deathly ill friend inspired Blackwell to take up a new career path, one unheard of for women at that time: to become a doctor. Despite facing considerable discrimination, she graduated from medical school, founded an infirmary, and paved the way for many more women to enter the medical field. With full-color photographs, a helpful chronology, and suggestions for further reading, Elizabeth Blackwell describes the life, struggles, and accomplishments of America's first female physician.
