Edith Houghton Hooker

Another great suffragist pioneer in Maryland was Edith Hooker.  She was the first woman accepted into Johns Hopkins University Medical School.  Additionally, she was an active advocate for women's right to vote in Maryland which began in 1910, however the efforts would come to no avail until 1919 when Congress passed the 19th amendment.
