Honourable Healers. Pioneer women doctors: Elizabeth Blackwell, Elizabeth Garrett Anderson and Constance Stone. By Merrilyn Murnane

Three continents, three women… Elizabeth Blackwell, Elizabeth Garrett Anderson and Constance Stone were women of vision and courage who gave honour to the field of medicine.

It was the mid-nineteenth century and 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.  Read their stories in Honourable Healers, and be inspired.
