Science has always been political. Without a high degree of medical skill there wouldn't be a stock market to raise squillions for the more enterprising among us because there would not be the strong mediocrity on which it all depends....

I dunno: sometimes I just makes things up... :bgrin

Anyway, I say cheers to this Lady that I'd never heard of before: let us all thank Google for reminding us what, and who, it takes to make the world go 'round.

(Hey, Google: when do you celebrate God ? :Hi )

Legacy
In the year of her death, Aldrich-Blake was named a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire on the New Year's Honours List in 1925.[1][8] The Dame Louisa Brandreth Aldrich-Blake Collection is located in the Royal Free Hospital's Archives Centre. A statue of her is in Tavistock Square, London.[4] The accomplished British surgeon's career was highlighted in a 2015 exhibit specifically related to her actions in the First World War. Aldrich-Blake's dedication to help others led her to performing surgeries on the front line and encouraging other women to join the field. Aldrich-Blake also influenced the War Office to allow women to enlist to be a part of the medical staff.[9] In 2019, she was acknowledged with a Google Doodle on what would be her 154th birthday.[10]

Yeh, lol: they don't want to be choosing the wrong God when the whole world is their customer. But, they do advertise Christmas at times... do they advertise Ramadan and stuff like that too?
