Abstract :
Examines the role of Elizabeth Garrett Anderson in opening medical training and employment for all, including the establishment of two institutions in London - the New Hospital for Women (now the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Hospital for Women), which culminated in a purpose-built hospital in 1890, and the London School of Medicine for Women (now Royal Free Hospital Medical School), founded in 1871 and rebuilt under her supervision. Shows that it was vitally important for professional women to challenge stereotypes which allied femininity with domesticity and the private sphere, by finding new visual and spatial ways of entering the public world. Notes the forging of a professional identity through portraiture, and images of the woman doctor in visual culture. A combination of spatial theories and visual analysis sheds light on the modernizing of medicine during this period. ;
