"Life itself, not the feminist movement, is altering
the status of women"
Below read mostly positive comments about women from some
of the important male
educational figures of the time. Prof. Mall's comments about who led the graduating
class at Johns Hopkins medical school in 1915 are riveting; ten women
the ninety graduates. Read why Johns
Hopkins accepted women.
