As late as 1874 no women were licensed to practice medicine in Canada. Indeed, Canada's first female doctor, Dr. James Miranda Stuart Barry, was a man. Or so thought her superiors in the British Army.

In this fascinating and inspiring account of the courage, heroism, and dedication of Canada's pioneer women doctors, Carlotta Hacker traces the lives of a wide range of women who worked throughout the world, combining the struggle for women's rights with remarkable medical achievements. Serving in the Canadian West, as missionaries in China, Tibet, and India, or advancing knowledge as medical scholars, the doctors considered worked tirelessly to alleviate suffering in the world.

The Indomitable Lady Doctors is a fascinating account of the struggle to open the Canadian medical profession to women, and of the remarkable women who fought this struggle.
