Medicine with a mission: Suffragettes as Army Surgeons

A lunchtime lecture by Jennian Geddes on the female-run Endell Street military hospital of WWI.


The extraordinary story of a group of British women doctors and nurses during the first world war who ran a large army hospital in London, despite strong opposition from their male colleagues. In the four years the Endell Street Military Hospital was open, the women treated over 26,000 inpatients, almost all of them soldiers. The workload was heavy, but they still found time to exploit their war work for the campaign for the vote.
