What you’ll do
Join acclaimed writer Wendy Moore to learn about the story of the suffragette doctors who ran Endell Street Military Hospital in the heart of London in World War I.
Founded by Louisa Garrett Anderson and Flora Murray, Endell Street was the only hospital within the British Army to be staffed by women. All the doctors, nurses and orderlies were female, except for a handful of male helpers.
Wendy will examine the legacy of the suffragette doctors and their pioneering and determined work in a hostile environment.
