Elizabeth Blackwell
By: Jaclyn S.
Massachusetts, Grade 4



There are a lot of famous women in history but I think Elizibeth Blackwell should be put in the womens hall of fame. Her great achievements now alloy women to be doctors.
Elizabeth Blackwell was the first woman to recieve a medical degree, witch means she was the first woman doctor. It was hard to find a medical school that would except women, actually, Elizabeth tried to join 29 schools until she found one that would except her! Elizabeth suceeded and got a medical degree.
After she got her degree Elizabeth helped break prejudice against women in medicine. That's why today women can take their medicine and be healthy!
Elizabeth opened womens medical schools after that, and was awarded with a medal of honor for her great achievements. This event encouraged women to become doctors.
Elizabeth changed a lot of things in life. That is why I am in full conclusion that Elizabeth Blackwell should be put in the hall of fame.
