UNISON Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Gallery opens

Last night the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Gallery within the new UNISON Centre in London was formally opened. The interactive gallery is a jewel in UNISON’s crown and a must-see for all feminists and trade unionists. Elizabeth Garret Anderson was the first woman to qualify as a doctor in Britain.

The gallery tells the story of Elizabeth Garrett Anderson’s life and times - the history of the hospital she founded, the pioneering work of women doctors, the struggle for women’s political rights and the history of the NHS. http://www.egaforwomen.org.uk/
