VIRTUAL TALK: “No Man’s Land” with Wendy Moore

NO MAN’S LAND
The Trailblazing Women Who Ran Britain’s Most Extraordinary Military Hospital During World War I
It took a global war and a pandemic to blaze this trail. A month after war broke out in 1914, doctors Flora Murray and Louisa Garrett Anderson set out for Paris. They opened a hospital in a luxury hotel and treated hundreds of casualties plucked from France’s battlefields. Their work was so successful that the British Army asked them to set up a hospital in the heart of London. Nicknamed the “Suffragettes Hospital,” Endell Street soon became known for its lifesaving treatments. Yet, their pioneering work would have been impossible prior to the war and the Spanish flu pandemic. Then, female doctors were restricted to treating women and children and not allowed to operate on men. Whether they knew it at the time or not, these strong and brilliant women seized an opportunity. They overcame bureaucratic hurdles, made great contributions to their fields and humanity and experienced unexpected freedoms during this very turbulent of time.
