Memorial signed by women doctors addressed to the University of London
Fol. 1 r.
To The Chancellor and Senate of the
University of London
We the undersigned women,
who are engaged in the practice and study
of Medicine, have heard with the greatest
satisfaction of the resolution of the Senate,
to admit women to the Medical Examinations
and the Degrees of the London University.
The fact that a complete Medical
School for Women, with the necessary
hospital practice, has recently been
established in London, leads us to think
that the present is a fitting time for
extending to women the incentive to
wide and patient study, which is
afforded by the high standard of the
London Degree. We believe that this
incentive will prove to be in all its
bearings as valuable to women as it
has been to men.
We beg therefore to tender our
sincere thanks to the Senate for the
action they have taken, and to
express our earnest hope that the
necessary steps for giving effect to their
resolution will be completed as soon as possible.
