'If only I had been treated by a lady doctor! ' That cry by a dying friend gave

Elizabeth Blackwell the reason she had been searching for.

Born in Bristol in 1821, her family emigrated to the USA when she was 11. There her determination to become a qualified doctor met with tremendous opposition. The fact that she did succeed is a tribute to this remarkable pioneering woman.
