This one-person play chronicles Blackwell's daring and courageous pursuit of a medical career in the 1850s as a woman. After facing initial rejection by the medical community because of her gender, Blackwell graduated top of her class from Geneva Medical College in New York and ultimately founded the New York Infirmary for Women and Children. As the first woman doctor in medicine and as a social activist, Blackwell went on to start other medical schools for women.
