DIA DE LA MUJER MÉDICA . .
ELIZABETH BLACKWELL . .
Primera mujer Médica en el mundo . .
👩🏻⚕️Hasta el siglo XIX el campo de la medicina estaba dominado por los hombres, pero en 1849, Elizabeth Blackwell cambió este panorama al convertirse en la primera mujer en el mundo en ejercer la práctica médica. 👩🏻⚕️Nacio en Bristol (Inglaterra), el 3 de febrero de 1821, fue la tercera de los nueve hijos de Samuel y Hannah Blackwell. Tras la muerte de su padre, luego de que su familia emigrara a USA, Elizabeth decidió estudiar medicina. 👩🏻⚕️Su historia es un ejemplo de perseverancia. Diez universidades rechazaron su solicitud hasta que finalmente fue admitida en Ginera (Nueva York). Así, el 11 de enero de 1849 se convertiría en la primera mujer en recibir el título de doctora en medicina. 👩🏻⚕️Luego, junto a Florence Nightingale, fundaría una escuela de enfermería para mujeres, pero ejercía su carrera paralelamente. 👩🏻⚕️Al término de la Guerra de Secesión, en 1868, fundó una universidad de medicina para mujeres y al año siguiente regresó a su país natal, donde ejerció la cátedra de ginecología hasta su jubilación. El 31 de mayo de 1931 falleció en Kilmun, Inglaterra.

DIA DA MULHER MÉDICA
Hoje marca o Dia da Mulher Médica em homenagem a Elizabeth Blackwell (1821-1910), que foi a primeira mulher que conseguiu ser médica nos Estados Unidos e em todo o mundo. Ela teve um papel muito ativo no movimento abolicionista americano. Dez universidades rejeitaram seu pedido até ser admitida no Geneva Medical College (NY) e, em janeiro de 1849, tornou-se a primeira mulher a receber um titulo de medicina.
Parabéns a todas Colegas, curtam bastante o significado desse dia!
HAPPY (belated) NATIONAL WOMEN PHYSICIAN’S DAY!! 👩🏻⚕️👩🏼⚕️👩🏽⚕️👩🏾⚕️
#ElizabethBlackwell was the the first women to receive a medical degree in the United States, in 1849. She was accepted as a PRACTICAL JOKE, and became a physician 71 years before women were granted the right to vote. Let that sink in.
I cannot put into words how grateful I am for women like Dr. Blackwell. Today, women account for more than one-third of practicing physicians, and about one half of physicians-in-training. This year, for the first time ever, a majority of first-year medical students were women. Yay Class of 2021!! 💗
There are so many reasons why I love pursuing a career in medicine, but the fact of the matter is in 2018, the field of medicine still creates a space for bias - both conscious and unconscious. It’s up to us to close these disparities, so, in the words of @shanny_do, women aren’t collectively recognized as #femalephysicians , but rather #physicians . 💪🏼🌡💉🏥
Happy #nationalwomenphysiciansday to all of my fellow lady docs! Grateful for what the women before me have done to pave the way for my education and training so that I, too, can have a fulfilling career as a physician. We’ve come so far and yet, even in Pediatrics, a majority of upper level positions (Chiefs, Department Chairs, etc) are filled by males. Maternity leave can be less than ideal, especially as a resident physician (I’ve heard of 2 weeks or less!), and some workplaces are not conducive to pumping for breastfeeding mamas. I’m hoping to help support younger female physicians in achieving their dreams, including if they’re hoping to become a #physicianmom .
While reading about #ElizabethBlackwell , the first woman to graduate medical school in the United States, I was struck by the manner in which she was accepted to #medschool . Per @wikipedia “They put the issue up to a vote by the 150 male students of the class with the stipulation that if one student objected, Blackwell would be turned away. The young men voted unanimously to accept her.” #heforshe was happening way back in 1847!
Tagging some of my favorite IG boss lady physicians. So pumped to see where the next few decades take us! 👩🏿⚕️👩🏻⚕️👩🏼⚕️👩🏽⚕️👩🏾⚕️
Photos are a throwback to last winter when I was killing it as a pregnant PGY2 on NICU night float at 38wks pregnant and in clinic on my due date. #bosslady#premed#residency#nwpd#physician#physicianmomlife#doctormom#worklifebalance#pediatrician#doctor#ilooklikeadoctor#pregnant#pregnancy#babybump#glassceiling#womeninmedicine#wim
• 👩🏾⚕️👩🏻⚕️👩🏿⚕️👩🏼⚕️👩🏽⚕️ • happy #nationalwomenphysiciansday to my fellow girl bosses! fun fact: Dr. Elizabeth Blackwell was the first woman in U.S. history to earn a medical degree 👊🏼💪🏼👏🏼 (ps. old pic, still have all my hair lol)
Happy National Women Physicians day! 🙌🏽 Dr. Elizabeth Blackwell, the first woman to receive an MD in the U.S., would have been 197 today. And one year ago, I had the opportunity to interview at Howard med school. So today, I’m especially thankful for all the female doctors who came before me and paved this wonderfully rewarding and challenging path. I’m celebrating the strong women out there who won’t give up on their dreams, the women who won’t take no for an answer, and the women who look back and extend a hand to help another woman because those are the people who helped me become who I am today. So here’s to girl power! 👊🏻👊🏼👊🏽👊🏾👊🏿
Happy National Women Physician Day on this 195th birthday of Elizabeth Blackwell, MD 👩🏻⚕️. She embodied the phrase “Nevertheless, she persisted”. Let us continue to persist for our rightful place in medicine. Let us persist for the leadership roles we want. Let us persist for the proper healthcare our patients deserve and let us never forget the people who supported us along the way. @womeninmedicine @dr.thai_rific @alissa.hutto @alliegc @saribee11 @tha_perfect_one #elizabethblackwell#persistence
Happy National Women’s Physician Day! 👩🏻⚕️👩🏼⚕️👩🏽⚕️👩🏾⚕️👩🏿⚕️ I want to give a shoutout to the lovely ladies plus Raymond who got me through @stanford.med aka the Zen Den crew. We lived together, studied together, partied together, and were there for each other to raise each other up despite each setback and cheer each other on with each achievement. Each and every one of these ladies is such an inspiration to me. Several are now mothers and I love being on the group text learning how to be a mama in medicine. I’m thankful for having so many strong female physician role models in them, my coresidents and attendings, and the many kickass #girlbosses I’ve come to know in this community. Together we will lift each other up and come out stronger than ever before 💪🏻
Today is National Women Physicians’ Day! 👩🏼⚕️🧠🙌🏼 I owe all my success to my crazy beautiful mama! Love you 💕💕💕@joannlarkinread for always supporting and pushing me 🤗😘😍I would like to honor of my fellow lady docs! We will continue to treat our patients with compassion and expertise, and fight to maintain the doctor-patient relationship which is the most intimate and important factor in medicine❤️ And for any women in medicine, especially those still in training, still experiencing disrespectful behavior, bullying and sexual harassment #timesup
Today is the 197th anniversary of her birth. #repost @yoursecretcode #Repost @yoursecretcode with @get_repost
I vote fascinating over easy! ⚡️☝️ #ElizabethBlackwell is the 1st woman to get a medical degree in the US and she’s the brain behind "Prevention is better than cure.” 🧠👏 Today is her birthday. Such a fascinating story! Excerpts from @the.independent.
A family friend’s terminal illness made Elizabeth reconsider her career as a teacher. The friend believed she would have received more considerate treatment from a female doctor and Blackwell became determined to train as a physician. She began applying for medical colleges and was rejected numerous times. Only one institution, Geneva Medical College in New York, was prepared to even consider her.
The faculty allowed the college’s all-male student body to vote on her admission, assuming they would never agree to allow a woman into their school. However, in a joke on their professors, the students voted to allow Blackwell to study with them and her admittance was granted in 1847.
Although she had finally gained a place at a medical school, the struggle was only just beginning for Blackwell and she faced much resentment and prejudice from her fellow students. But, against the odds, she received her MD degree two years later, becoming the first woman in America to do so. (...) She founded the National Health Society in 1871, with the goal of educating the public on the benefits of hygiene and healthy lifestyles. Their motto “Prevention is better than Cure”, is still a phrase widely used not just in medical circles, but in society as a whole. #history#badasswomen
