A Class of Their Own – The Edinburgh Seven

The Edinburgh Seven were ladies of unmatched determination in their pursuit of the RIGHT to matriculate in a British University and to study for a degree which would enable them to have their names added to the Medical Register.

Theirs is a story that has inspired and horrified in equal measure over the 152 years since five of them, led by Sophia Jex-Blake, took the first step and matriculated.

My story, starting today in The People’s Friend magazine, is a fictionalised account. I hope you, too, will share my wonder.
