ELIZABETH BLACKWELL SOCKS
In the world where Elizabeth Blackwell grew up, the idea of a woman growing up to become a medical doctor was rather preposterous. Like many other professional pursuits at that time in history, physicianship was the exclusive domain of men. But Elizabeth Blackwell believed she could do anything a man could do. She followed her passion and became the first woman to ever graduate from medical college–and that was just the beginning. She published influential work on typhoid fever, helped establish England’s first medical school for women, and in the process became one of the most admired physicians of her time. A true pioneer, you can learn more about Elizabeth Blackwell and how she changed the world in Rachel Ignotofsky’s book Women in Science: 50 Fearless Pioneers Who Changed the World. These inspiring Elizabeth Blackwell Socks were made in collaboration with her.
