A short, felicitous account of the struggles of Sophia Jex-Blake, Edith Pechey, Isabel Thorne, Matilda Chaplin, and Helen Evans to become licensed physicians in Great Britain. Their story proper is introduced with a short sketch of Elizabeth Blockwell, their pioneering predecessor, and a mise en scène of Victorian England. A very short closing chapter brings the story of women in medicine up to our times. The scope of the chronicle is much less than is promised by the vague title, but this book, even though written for the teenage reader, will be enjoyed by medical students and physicians. Especially recommended
