Louisa Garrett Anderson: suffragette and army surgeon

Out of the Archives Illustrated talk by Jennian F Geddes

Louisa Garrett Anderson (1873-1943), daughter of Britain’s first woman doctor, founded a hospital for women and children, and went to prison for her activities with the militant suffrage movement.

From 1915 to 1919 she was Chief Surgeon at the Endell Street Military Hospital, a large woman-run army hospital in Covent Garden, where at the same time as treating huge numbers of casualties, the staff actively campaigned for the vote throughout the war.

Jennian Geddes is former Reader in Clinical Neuropathology at Queen Mary, University of London. She is currently researching the history of early women doctors.
