An Irish Woman Doctor

I have just put up an extensive page on Isobel Addey Tate, a relatively early woman doctor who died in the First World War.  Doctors are as likely, even more likely, to be women as men in the modern world, but this was not always the case.  Women fought hard to be accepted within the profession. Isobel was not the first, but she certainly was among the earlier women to achieve professional status as a doctor.  Her life and career must have been fairly difficult.  There are stories within this story – the often heroic activities of medical women in the First World War, the risks they took and the price they sometimes paid.  We should be aware of their struggle and celebrate their success!  Go to my page amd have a look.
