    in the medical field, a champion of women’s rights for equality in education: Sophia Jex-Blake. Sophia was born in Hastings, England in to very traditional Anglican parents. Her parents were staunchly religious and very strict with Sophia and her sisters, and from n early age, Sophia was. Sophia Louisa Jex-Blake (21 January – 7 January ) was an English physician, teacher and feminist. She was one of the first female doctors in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, a leading campaigner for medical education for women and was involved in founding two medical schools for women, in London and in Edinburgh, where she also started a women's hospital.

    Jex-Blake, Sophia (–)British physician and education reformer who was one of the first female physicians in Europe. Name variations: Sophia Jex Blake. Born on Janu , in Sussex, England; died on January 7, , in Sussex; daughter of Thomas Jex-Blake and Maria (Cubitts) Jex-Blake; never married; no children. Source for information on Jex-Blake, Sophia (–): Women.   FURTHER READING: The main source for the life and work of Jex-Blake is Margaret Todd’s classic biography of her, The Life of Sophia Jex-Blake (), which you can find in inexpensive reprint editions, but I probably wouldn’t recommend that unless you are a serious Jex-Blake enthusiast. The wealth of letters and diary entries it provides.

    Personal life. Todd was the romantic partner of Dr Sophia Jex-Blake, founder of Todd's university and place of employment. On Jex-Blake's retirement in , they moved to Windydene, Mark Cross, where Todd wrote The Way of Escape () and Growth (). After Jex-Blake's death, she wrote The Life of Dr Sophia Jex-Blake () under her own name, describing the fight of women in the 19th Born: 23 April , Kilrenny, Scotland. Jex-Blake was, of course, a real person, one of a group of remarkable women who laboured for the right of their sex to become doctors. Given the medical context of these stories, I think the alliance of the fictional Antrobus and the real-life Sophia Jex-Blake works well. .
