M. Carey Thomas

This is M. Carey Thomas who was the second President of Bryn Mawr College. She was an incredibly influential women. She was a founder of the John’s Hopkins School of Medicine and was large proponent of women’s suffrage. She went through a lot of hardship in order to gain the status she did. When she originally applied to be the president of the college, she was denied but she persevered. Later on in her career she went on to become the first president of the National College Women’s Equal Suffrage League. She was an inspiration to women of that time and still to women today. It was through her determination and commitment that she became such an important leader in women’s education.
