I am visiting a place where first female doctor was born. She became a first female doctor in Japan after extraordinary efforts and beliefs in 1885.
Also, she devoted her life to women’s rights plus open a clinic in Hokkaido.
That means she was fighting what we have not achieved now in more than 100 years ago and like opened a clinic in the state of Colorado in 1860’s. I was surprised her very determined thoughts and admired that she made it. As discrimination against lady’s application for medical schools was emerged in Japan last year, we need to pursue equal rights for everything especially for the things that we cannot choose by our decision such as a gender and a race. It was pretty much good visit there. #荻野吟子#荻野吟子の生涯#荻野吟子記念館#女医#医師#利根川#femaledoctors#doctors#womensrights#equalrights#legends
