Woman's Physical Freedom,
book by Clelia Duel Mosher, M.D. (The Womans
Press, New York City, U.S.A., 1923, 87 pages)
"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 were among
the ninety graduates. Read why Johns Hopkins accepted women.
Read a short discussion of the book.
SarahAnne Hazlewood generously donated this book to the museum.
