Re: The Feminist Aspect

Truly interesting fact about famous and progressive Army surgeon Dr. James Barry (ca.1795-1865) who actually was a woman.

Note, the biographer's name is Rachel Holmes!

Surely this story was used as a hint to Molly's appearance in the case of Abominable Bride.

Re: The Feminist Aspect

Interesting link! Could have had to do with how they included Molly in the special. I have to say I enjoyed the Canadian connection, too.

Re: The Feminist Aspect

Very interesting indeed. Thanks for posting and I agree, this might be a story Mofftiss know.

@Yitzock

Oh yes, "three- continents- doctor", indeed!  (England, Africa, Canada). 😜


@SusiGo

You're welcome!
It's absolutely fascinating story!

Here some more links about this great person, Margaret Ann Bulkley who named herself James Miranda Stuart Barry to study medicine and become the most progressive  military doctor at his time.

Re: The Feminist Aspect

Excuse me for spam perhaps, but I thought, this excerpt from " Lucia di Lammermoor" by Donizetti  could be very suitable for this topic, even similar. (And I love the mad scene with " Il dolce suono" anyway). 💔
