The Rare Privilege of Medicine: Women anaesthetists in Australia and New Zealand

The Geoffrey Kaye Museum of Anaesthetic History launched its online exhibition The Rare Privilege of Medicine: Women anaesthetists in Australia and New Zealand on International Women’s Day, March 8, 2018. The physical exhibition was launched on April 18, to coincide with the Australian Heritage Festival.

The exhibition investigates the professional lives of 10 women anaesthetists, ranging in date from 1896 to the present. These women came to medicine through very different paths, and the trajectories of their careers were also markedly different.

With these women’s stories, the museum hopes to inspire other women but also to challenge other researchers to find women’s stories in medical history, and bring them into the public domain.
