Women Who Made a Difference
Women in History… a huge subject. We could talk about the contributions that women have made throughout history and fill libraries! But as we celebrate Black History Month, let’s look at a segment of that history and explore the black women in America who have made strides in promoting health and wellness in their communities.
That is the mission here at Violet Daily, to promote health and wellness in the communities we serve. Healthy breasts for life for women like you, who are out there making a difference. Learn more about how you can be free from breast pain in 60 days!
Black Women in Medicine
There were women who paved the way in the medical world, like Rebecca Lee Crumpler, who was a physician, nurse and author. After studying at the New England Female Medical College, in 1864 she became the first black woman to become a doctor of medicine in the United States and published a book of medical advice for women and children in 1883. Her book was among the first publications written by an African American about medicine.
Marilyn Hughes Gaston, MD was the first Black woman to lead a public health service bureau. Her study on sickle cell anemia led to a nationwide screening program for newborns.
Georgia Rooks Dwelle, MD was the first woman to graduate from Spelman College and go on to medical school. In 1920, she established the first maternity hospital for Black women in Atlanta, Georgia.
Violet Daily is a woman owned company empowering women like you with a unique iodine supplement to help you get rid of breast pain in 60 days. Visit our website for more details.
Gertrude Teixeira Hunter, MD was the national director of health services for Project Head Start, and in 1965, she helped implement the first national comprehensive health program for preschool children.
You cannot talk about black influential women without mentioning Rosa Parks whom the United States Congress has honored as “the first lady of civil rights” and “the mother of the freedom movement”. When she refused to surrender her seat to a white passenger on a segregated bus in Montgomery, Alabama, it sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott. And that success launched nationwide efforts to end racial segregation of public facilities – providing cleaner and healthier options for black people across the nation.
The list goes on and on with women of courage who rose to the top to be among the “firsts” in providing change for better healthcare and better living. We celebrate them all, and we celebrate you!
