Elizabeth Black was the first lady, American lady, got the admission in a medical college. An influential doctor recommends her for admission. The administrator of the college did not refuse the doctor but they also did not want a female student in their college. They decided to put the matter before students, hoping that her admission will be refused.

The college authorities were surprised that the student body approved her admission. Some of the students thought that women should have equal rights. Some of them thought it would be amusing to be the only medical college in the country where a woman doctor had been trained. So the vote in favor was carried and the college authorities gave permission to admit Elizabeth n the medical college.

Eventually, Elizabeth get the acceptance letter and proceeds in Geneva College. The dean introduced her to all the students in her class. Initially when she came to college they behaved very badly, but after joining the class, the whole situation started changing. The presence of a lady proved that it is beneficial in the discipline of the medical college.

Now a days women are working side by side with men, women are playing very crucial role in society by joining all sorts of professions and careers.
