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.
