Women Doctors

The Appointment of Women Doctors.

A newspaper article detailing the appointment of three female doctors to the staff of The Royal London Hospital. The article explains that many male doctors have been sent to work for the RAMC and as such there is a growing shortage of doctors. The article also describes the difficulties faced by female doctors and it notes that while some medical schools (including The Royal London) accept women to study medicine many others still exclude women.
