This section explores the development of female medical education, sexual harassment within the field, and an exceptional “doctress”. We begin by exploring the debate over education equality and the establishment of the first female medical college. Then we analyze the roots of sexual harassment within the medical field. Finally, we focus on the life of Dr. Mary Walker, an outstanding civil war surgeon and dress reformist.
