This storyboard does not have a description.
"The practice of infirmary, both medical and surgical, was conducted entirely by women; but a board of consulting physicians, men of high standing in the profession, gave the sanction of their names."
Elizabeth Blackwell was born on February 3, 1821 in Bristol, England. Years after she moved to the United States with her family she became a teacher. After this she decided to attend Medical College and later became known as the first woman to receive her medical degree and was the first woman to graduate from a medical school in the United States.
She was accepted into Geneva Medical School in New York in 1847. After ranking first in her class she later graduated in 1849, which makes her the first woman to become a doctor of medicine. After establishing a college she later returned to England and set up a private practice and served as a lecturer at the London School of Medicine.
Elizabeth Blackwell is an important woman of history because she proved everybody that said that women can't do this or that wrong. She became an inspiration by representing that you can do anything you desire. She made it through every challenge she faced during this time in history when women were thought to be not very intelligent and were treated as only housekeepers and housewives.
