Women in Pharmacy: The Pioneers

Geoff W. Rayner-Canham and Marelene F. Rayner-Canham. Sir Wilfred Grenfell College, Corner Brook, NF, Canada

The 1890s to 1930s were the most crucial decades for the advancement of women in science. In particular, this was the period when the profession of pharmacy opened its doors to women. We will compare and contrast the experiences of early women pharmacists in Britain and the United States and then highlight the contributions of some of the pioneers.
