Event description

Description

To mark the centenary of her death in 2017, Edinburgh councillors decided to name a street after Doctor Elsie Inglis, heroine of the First World War and an advocate for women’s rights. On 26 November 1917, the suffragist and founder of the Scottish Women’s Hospitals for Foreign Service, Dr Elsie Inglis, passed away at the Station Hotel in Newcastle upon Tyne. She was returning home with her all women hospital units from her last mission in Serbia and Russia, but never reached Edinburgh. The impressive funeral service was held at St Giles' Cathedral in Edinburgh on 29 November, while Winston Churchill believed that name of Elsie Inglis "will shine in history".

So, what do we know about this passionate, determined and courageous woman? Come to this talk by Zvezdana Popovic to learn more.
