WW1 Organisations


My research today has led to Elizabeth Crawford's wonderful website:  
http://womanandhersphere.com/2014/05/06/women-and-the-first-world-war-the-work-of-women-doctors/

where Elizabeth has written a superb article about the work of women who were doctors durng WW1.

Organisations

The Serbian Relief Fund 
The Society of Friends
The Wounded Allies Relief Committee
The British Farmers
The Berry Mission
The Almeric Pages Massage Corps
The Women's Imperial Service League (Mrs Mabel Stobart -Women's Convoy Corps Balkan War 1912)
The Women's Hospital Corps
The Scottish Women's Hospitals 

All those organised medical teams to serve in the various theatres of the First World War. Many organisations were happy to include women doctors, however the Women’s Imperial Service League, the Women’s Hospital Corps, and the Scottish Women’s Hospitals would only employ women doctors.

With thanks to Adrienne Mayers who is the Librarian at the Liverpool Medical Institution for pointing me in the right direction to find more inspirational women for the project.
