Pioneer Work in Opening the Medical Profession to Women


Read by PhyllisV

(5 stars; 2 reviews)

A fascinating account of the first woman to receive a medical degree in the United States. She writes of her struggles in being accepted to a medical school (at one point she is advised to disguise herself as a male). She details her experiences while in the process of obtaining her degree, and her work both with patients and administratively, helping to found medical schools and hospitals for women. Summary by Phyllis Vincelli (10 hr 51 min)

this is Raycyst


(5 stars)

It presupposes that womxn doing amazing things in medicine is something unusual. In actuality womxn are responsible for 99 percent of all advances in science and medicine. It is just that phalogocentric males take all the credit for advances made by womxn. Also the idea of an advance or discovery is an entirely phalogocentric world view. Womxn and nonbinaries through a spirit of cooperative cooperation bring forth amazing scientific knowledge to further enhance the person kind. so ban this book. it makes it look like 'medical discoveries' by women is something really unusual. it therefore patronizes womxn.
