ELSIE INGLIS: THE WOMAN WHO WOULD NOT SIT STILL !

  • Elsie Inglis was one of Scotland’s most inspiring women. Physician, surgeon, humanitarian, medical pioneer, suffragist, and founder of the Scottish Women’s Hospitals for Foreign Service during World War I.
  • Her offer to the British War Office in 1914 to provide a unique all-women medical service for the war front was rejected. She was told "My good lady, go home and sit still." Thankfully, other Allied nations welcomed them.
  • 1500 women in 14 hospital units saved thousands of soldiers’ lives in France, Serbia, Russia, Romania and Greece.
