[Perspectives] Inspirational women in medicine

The headquarters of medical professional bodies are invariably decorated with portraits of eminent historical figures—almost all of them men. Such places can feel alienating to the women who now make up an increasing proportion of their membership. So to enter the UK’s Royal College of Physicians (RCP) in London and find its grand atrium hung with 25 huge, colour photographs of eminent medical women—all still living and extremely active—is a breath of fresh air.
