An Indian woman, a Japanese woman, and a Syrian woman, all training to be doctors at Women’s Medical College of Philadelphia, 1880s. (Image courtesy Legacy Center, Drexel University College of Medicine Archives, Philadelphia, PA. Image #p0103) (x)

The Indian woman, Dr. Anandi Gopal Joshi, was the first Indian woman to earn a degree in Western medicine, and also believed to be the first Hindu woman to set foot on American soil.

The Japanese woman, Dr. Kei Okami, was the first Japanese woman to obtain a degree in Western Medicine.

The Syrian woman is Dr. Sabat Islambooly.  Her name is spelled incorrectly on that photograph. 

For those interested, here’s more information on other women of color who attended and graduated from Women’s Medical College of Philadelphia in the past, with a focus on the Japanese-American women they accepted during the US WW2 internment of Japanese-Americans.

Source Want more facts? Why not follow Ultrafacts

I learned this while watching Drunk History! I was shocked I had never hear of her before.

Not even on tumblr!

I’ve seen this on Drunk History too!! Drunk History on comedy central: a better source for American history than the education system.

HERE’s a 3 minute skit from Drunk History, the facts are pretty spot on & is well told.

LGBTQ* Fashion History
At the turn of the twentieth century,  wearing a red neck tie was a “signal” for (and to) those in the know. Following the green carnation, but predating the pinkyring, gay men would adorn a red neck tie “outing” themselves quiety in public

Found at least one source for it.
