    Elizabeth Blackwell is my favorite lady in history She was the first female doctor, and the story of her struggle is phenomenal I started doing book reports on her when I was probably 10 or 11, and I fell in love with women s history because of her I love that her sister became the second female doctor, once she saw that her big sis could do it.
