International Women’s Day 2020

In honour of International Women’s Day 2020, the College of Anaesthesiologists of Ireland today shares the stories of two female anaesthetists who contributed to the advancement of women in medicine .

This year’s theme for International Women’s Day is “#EachforEqual” and we are proud to honour the impact that Dr Ella Webb and Dr Sarah Joyce O’ Malley made and celebrate their achievements. Both of these pioneers had a tremendous impact on the profession.

Dr Ella Webb (1877-1946)

Dr Sarah Joyce O’ Malley (1896-1959)
