Creators: Cherry, Deborah and Walker, Lynne
Description:

This essay, co-authored with Dr Lynne Walker, considers the first British-born woman to qualify and practise as a medical doctor in the UK. It discusses the ways in which Garrett Anderson curated her public image through portraits and dress, alongside the wealth of cartoons and press images that circulated of her and about women doctors. The article analyses the spatial management of her hospital practice, especially the arrangement and use of space in the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson hospital.
