The battles of India’s first women in medicine, with Kavitha Rao

While it isn’t unusual to have women doctors in India now, and the rise of women in the medical field seems to have been steady, the road that led us to this place wasn’t easy. India’s first “lady doctors” battled everything from unsupportive husbands and over supportive husbands to widowhood, caste rules, and divorce.

Kavitha Rao’s new book, ‘Lady Doctors’ tells the inspiring stories of these women, and the battles they fought. She joins Sandip in this episode to talk about it.
