Mary Walker (1833-1919): Biography of an American Radical and Physician

This critical biography of Dr. Mary Walker (1833-1919) places the life of one of America's earliest women physicians in the context of nineteenth- and early twentieth-century medicine, reform movements, and literature. Walker was a physician, author, lecturer, abolitionist, suffragist, inventor, and peace activist whose radical activism alienated as many followers and it attracted, but she never abandoned her belief in her right to independence and to participate in U.S. society on her own terms--from her early work as a surgeon in the Civil War to her run for the U.S. Senate in 1881 to her lifelong endeavor to insure women's right to vote.
