Gelesen von Ciufi Galeazzi

(4,5 Sterne; 6 Bewertungen)

This is a brief biography of the Scottish physician and suffragist Dr. Elsie Inglis. Dr. Inglis founded a maternity hospital for the poor in Edinburgh (then known as the Hospice, but later as the Elsie Inglis Memorial Hospital), and was known for her charity and willingness to waive fees when patients could not afford her care. She was also a key figure in Scotland's Women's Suffrage Movement. She is best known, however, for founding the Scottish Women's Hospitals for Foreign Service, which provided staffed teams of female-staffed field hospitals to war zones during World War I. - Summary by Ciufi Galeazzi (3 hr 13 min)

An interesting biography of a remarkable woman. The hospital here in Edinburgh which bore her name until recently now sadly closed (progress?). Very professional reader made this a pleasure to listen to.
