With more women than men enrolled in medical school today, it might be hard to imagine a time when females were flatly denied the opportunity to become doctors. This audiobook profiles three pioneering Victorian-era women who helped open the doors to the female medical students who would follow. Jean Ann Douglass offers a first-rate narration of this work. Her tone varies with the content from exasperation with an entrenched male hierarchy to exultation at women finally securing a place among physicians. She uses pauses effectively and without affectation to add drama and to let listeners catch up with the content. The author relies extensively on letters and journals of the women involved, and Douglass enlivens those passages. R.C.G.
