Get the story...
Sarah Hibbard graduated from the Woman's Medical College in 1870.
Hibbard was one of the female medical students who attended a clinical lecture at Pennsylvania Hospital in November 1869 and was met with harassment and “jeering” by the hundreds of male medical students in attendance. In her diary, she wrote about how the incident, and the public and press response to it, had a lasting effect on the female students.
