Recent Losses

Some recent losses of notable women as appeared @ Times Online:

Jean Lawrie: "Jean Lawrie campaigned for improved working conditions for medical women during a career which spanned 50 years. Lawrie pushed for key reforms to ensure that female doctors were able to pursue successful careers as well as assuming the responsibilities of family life."

Carmen Blacker: "Carmen Blacker was an outstanding scholar of Japanese culture. Throughout her life she did all she could for closer understanding between Britain and Japan. Japanese studies would not have survived at the University of Cambridge, where the bulk of her academic life was spent, without her efforts to attract support and students."

Anne Boutwood: "Anne Boutwood was the distinguished consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist who helped to lead the campaign to fight to save the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson (EGA) Hospital, London, in the mid-1970s."
