"A survivor. The only victim of the Chesapeake Ripper who lived to tell"
An Indian woman, a Japanese woman, and a Syrian woman, all training to be doctors at Women’s Medical College of Philadelphia, 1880s. (Image courtesy Legacy Center, Drexel University College of Medicine Archives, Philadelphia, PA. Image #p0103) (x)
The Indian woman, Dr. Anandi Gopal Joshi, was the first Indian woman to earn a degree in Western medicine, and also believed to be the first Hindu woman to set foot on American soil.
The Japanese woman, Dr. Kei Okami, was the first Japanese woman to obtain a degree in Western Medicine.
The Syrian woman is Dr. Sabat Islambooly. Her name is spelled incorrectly on that photograph.
For those interested, here’s more information on other women of color who attended and graduated from Women’s Medical College of Philadelphia in the past, with a focus on the Japanese-American women they accepted during the US WW2 internment of Japanese-Americans.

BrOTP: Sansa/Jeyne Poole. I do crackship it too, though <3 I am very interested in a potential future Brienne/Sansa friendship (?). Not saying I wouldn’t ship it too though. Oh, and I have a fondness for Sansa/post ADWD Theon. If he doesn’t die I think/hope she could help him get better. Possibly. And Sansa/Arya, Sansa/Robb…well Sansa and her siblings actually *sobs*. I want a Sansa/Bran reunion so bad.
OT3: Brienne/Sansa/Margaery ahah
NOTP: Sansa/Jaime, I just don’t see the appeal, sorry! And most sexual ships involving her, especially Petyr/Sansa….
