Primary – February 3

The first woman to become a recognized doctor, Elizabeth Blackwell, was born on this date in 1821.

She was admitted to medical school only because the men already at the school, when offered the chance to reject her, assumed her application was a hoax and jokingly played along.

How do you think she felt when she showed up at school the first day?
