"Oregon's Doctor to the World is cutting edge in its presentation of a transnational history of women's participation in international health care, and its early chapters deepen understanding of the Northwest and national woman suffrage movement and women's partisan activism. As a whole, this book creates a picture of almost a century of women's public activism."
