Description

The first Dutch woman to earn a medical degree, Aletta H. Jacobs pioneered health care reforms and access to birth control for prostitutes and saleswomen. A leader in the international women's suffrage and peace movements, she joined Carrie Chapman Catt on a year-long round-the-world lecture tour. Jacobs recounts her remarkable experiences in a voice that is often witty, sometimes angry, and always indomitable.
