Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 097005193X, Paperback)

Today, close to half of all medical graduates in the United States are women. Such was not the case in the 19th century, when only a handful of women braved the barriers against their gender and pursued a medical education. In this book are biographies of some of the most notable pioneers of medicine: Elizabeth Blackwell, first woman MD; Mary Walker, Civil War surgeon and Congressional Medal of Honor recipient; and Sarah Loguen Fraser, one of the nation's first African American women doctors and the first woman doctor in the Dominican Republic.
