Description

In mid-nineteenth century, women were expected to remain at home, as wives and mothers. In Britain, the United States and Australia, teaching was the only respectable profession for women; even nursing was frowned upon. In this environment, three remarkable women rewrote the history books by becoming doctors in a world where women were not even allowed to vote.
