This year’s February-born scientist is Aletta Henriette Jacobs, MD. She’s not a familiar name, but her legacy as a practical social scientist is huge. Born February 9, 1854 in the Netherlands, her country doctor father inspired her desire to practice medicine. She became the first woman to complete a university course in the Netherlands, and then the first female physician there. Dr. Jacobs devoted her practice to women and children—she pioneered family planning, setting up the world’s first birth control clinic and introducing the diaphragm there, she taught hygiene and child care, and held twice-weekly clinics for the poor. She eventually extended her ardent advocacy of women’s rights to include education, the vote, and the workplace.

Our “mascot” makes for some fun favors and door prizes. Join us for an enjoyable and illuminating evening!
