Dr. Elsie Inglis
First published in 1919, Dr. Elsie Inglis-by English suffragist LADY FRANCES BALFOUR (1858-1930)-was the definitive biography, based on first-hand sources, of the pioneering physician. Born in India to progressive parents, Inglis was educated at the Edinburgh School of Medicine for Women, which opened in 1886. She encountered sexism throughout her life and fought against the prevailing assumptions that women unfit to be doctors and that women's ailments could most easily be solved by relaxation on a couch. Among her many trailblazing accomplishments, she established hospitals in Russia, Serbia, and France for victims of the First World War. Anyone interested in women's suffrage and women's advancements in medicine will be fascinated in this biography.

Page 17 - Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord : and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man ; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them : they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.
