The lady named Thunder: the biography of Dr. Ethel Margaret Phillips (1876-1951)
Dr. Margaret Phillips was a pioneering missionary who served in China at a time when women were usually dutiful wives, and certainly not unmarried "suffragist" medical doctors. Educated at Manchester University, she spent 43 years in China with a special mission to improve the health and circumstances of women, fight tuberculosis, and heal sick children. Overlapping the era in which the Imperial system collapsed, China was invaded and occupied by Japan, and the Communist revolution began, the life story of Margaret Phillips reflects the great events that transformed China in the first half of the 20th century.
