[Perspectives] Elizabeth Garrett Anderson: early pioneer of women in medicine

Today, about 55% of medical students in the UK are women. While change is needed to address issues such as the representation of women in leadership positions in medicine, career progression, and gender differences in pay and grant funding, women are now entering medicine in increasing numbers. Given the important role of women in the medical profession, it might be easy to forget the struggles experienced by early women doctors in trying to attain medical qualifications. Elizabeth Garrett Anderson, who died on Dec 17, 1917, was one of these early pioneers.
