Women Doctors.  In 1960, Elizabeth Garrett took her first steps on the long road to becoming only the second woman doctor when she went to train as a nurse at Middlesex Hospital.  By various "feminine dodges" she gained entry to medical lectures and even the dissecting room.  Top inset: Sophia Jex-Blake (1840-1912).  Her determination overcame all barriers to the medical profession.  Bottom inset:  Elizabeth Blackwell (1821-1910), the first woman doctor to practice in Britain.  Original artwork for illustrations on p18 of Look and Learn issue no 1016 (29 August 1981).  Lent for scanning by The Gallery of Illustration.
