Outlines the challenges encountered by women either entering the health-care profession or being treated by health-care professionals, starting in the early days of settlement in the province. Takes readers from the mid-1800s to the end of the last decade and provides a glimpse into women's health care in the future. Profiles individual women who met with closed doors when trying to build a career in health professions and "just crashed right through those doors."
