In the 1830s, when a brave and curious girl named Elizabeth Blackwell was growing up, women had been supposed to be wives and mothers. Some women could be teachers or seamstresses, but profession options were few. Certainly no women had been doctors.
But Elizabeth refused to accept the typical beliefs that women weren't smart enough to become doctors, or that they had been too weak for such hard carry out. And she would not take no for an answer. Although she faced much opposition, she worked hard and finally— when she graduated from medical school and went on to have a brilliant career— proved her detractors wrong. This inspiring story of the first female medical doctor shows how one strong-willed woman opened the doors for all the female physicians to come.
