The third edition of Women and Medicine provides a comprehensive and definitive history, from early riots in medical schools when women tried to enroll, to women finally overcoming obstacles, making medical breakthroughs and enjoying brilliant medical careers. Biographical chapters look at the lives and accomplishments of Elizabeth Blackwell, Janet Travell, Mary Putnam Jacobi, Rosalyn Yalow and Gerty Cory, Marie Curie and other Nobel Prize Winners, Rosalie Slaughter Morton, Sophia Jex-Blake, Elizabeth Garett Anderson, and numerous others pioneers. Not just a resource in the field of women's studies or for women seeking careers in medicine, this book is a fascinating read and is also appropriate for high school level students seeking report material. Women and Medicine is a necessary addition to the field of women's studies, a resource for women seeking careers in medicine and useful to all women who seek models who challenge the status quo.
