Program Description

Description

Join us in a public showing of the PBS Documentary, Daring Women Doctors.

 

At this crucial time when women physicians and nurses are contributing significantly to our community’s health, this documentary provides a look at the challenging and illuminating history of 19th century women doctors. Hidden in American history, all-women’s medical schools began to appear in the mid-19th century long before women had the right to vote or own property.

 

Come and join us for a celebration of Women’s History Month.

 

This documentary is rated TV-14; it is intended for mature audiences. This PBS film is available in FBCL’s Access Video on Demand digital collection, and it is being shown publicly with permission from Infobase
