Marking the life and achievements of Plymouth's first female doctor
In the centenary of women’s suffrage, the University and Plymouth City Council installed a blue plaque to honour Plymouth’s first woman doctor Rosa Bale, who practised as a GP in Portland Square.
“At a time when glass ceilings would have been ten metres thick, she not only qualified as a doctor, but was a revered speaker and made a huge difference to local public health in Plymouth.” Professor Hilary Neve.
The Women's Network stands in solidarity with UPSU in remembering Sarah Everard and together we will #ReclaimTheseStreets. You can read our statement and access support through our dedicated #ReclaimTheseStreets page. The safety of women in society is everyone’s responsibility and we also want you to help us with recommended resources on male allyship.
