Alice Paul

President Theodore Roosevelt

Dr. Mildred Jefferson:
The late Dr. Mildred Jefferson, the first black woman to graduate from Harvard Medical School and first woman to become a surgeon at Boston University Hospital, didn’t align with such a malevolent mentality. She epitomized true feminism, like the leading feminists of the early 20th century. Dr. Jefferson, co-founder of the National Right to Life, knew a lot about inequality. She faced the evil of eugenic Jim Crow laws in her home state of Texas, fought elitism and sexism to make her incredible mark in history. She didn’t have to denigrate others. She didn’t have to rely upon gender animus. And she didn’t regard her own special life-giving biology as her enemy. (excerpt from LifeNews.com)
