In the world where Elizabeth Blackwell grew up, the idea of a woman growing up to become a medical doctor was rather preposterous. Like many other professional pursuits at that time in history, physicianship was the exclusive domain of men. But Elizabeth Blackwell believed she could do anything a man could do. She followed her passion and became the first woman to ever graduate from medical college–and that was just the beginning. She published influential work on typhoid fever, helped establish England’s first medical school for women, and in the process became one of the most admired physicians of her time.If you had to compare love to an animal, what would you say? That it’s as sticky as a porcupine? As loud as a woodpecker? Or as big as a whale? No, no, no. How about that it’s as powerful as an elephant, or as tender as a baby duckling? Getting closer, but still no. If we’re going to pick an animal (living or extinct), we’ll pick the ferocious T-Rex because love is fierce. And so are these adorable Love is Fierce Crew Socks, part of our Artist Collaboration series with Hello!Lucky.
