The Entrance of Women into the Medical Profession in 19th Century America

To examine the entrance of women into the medical profession in 19th century America and to consider the sociological and ideological background which provided a backdrop for women's interest in medicine and health. Of particular concern will be the question of how and where, within the context of 19th century cultural values, women doctors became ideological innovators and why and to what extent they remained culture bound. The P.I. will also trace the fate of these women into the early 20th century, considering their marriage and family patterns, their medical interests and therapeutics, and their influence on the profession as a whole.
