Ghilchik, Margaret.
The Fellowship of Women: Two Hundred Surgical Lives
(Smith-Gordon & Co Ltd, 2011). The Fellowship of Women recounts the struggle of women to be accepted as surgical Fellows of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. In describing the professional careers and private lives of the first two hundred women to become Fellows from 1911 to 1970 - their practice continuing into that of their successors on into the present - Margaret Ghilchik, herself one of the number, adds a dimension to the social and medical history of the period and to the inspiring story of women's emancipation in the face of male surgeon's obstinacy. The author emphasizes the effect of the World Wars, when the role of women as surgeons could not be checked, but suggests that in modern times the numbers of women Fellows may have been less than expected. Paperback. New book, fine. xiv + 323pp. Order No. NSBK-C15241
