The Indian woman, Dr. Anandi Gopal Joshi, was the first Indian woman to earn a degree in Western medicine, and also believed to be the first Hindu woman to set foot on American soil.
The Japanese woman, Dr. Kei Okami, was the first Japanese woman to obtain a degree in Western Medicine.
The Syrian woman is Dr. Sabat Islambooly. Her name is spelled incorrectly on that photograph.
For those interested, here’s more information on other women of color who attended and graduated from Women’s Medical College of Philadelphia in the past, with a focus on the Japanese-American women they accepted during the US WW2 internment of Japanese-Americans.

Funny right !
Clif Dickens thought of a unique way how to make fun of global brands, replacing their original slogans with something a little bit more honest. by putting things that people already know about these brands next to their logos, they seem even more true…
The forgotten land of West Papua is under brutal Indonesian military occupation. Its tribal people are being slaughtered, and their unique environment destroyed. But the world is doing nothing to stop it. In 1963, in violation of international law, Indonesia occupied and colonised the West Papuan homeland in the western part of New Guinea. Since that tragic event the West Papuans are asking for a fair referendum about their independence. At least 100.000 indigenous people lost their lives in this secret war.
Like a rash in a dark, dank place that can’t be reached by human hands….I have returned. Sometime in the wee hours of Saturday June 21, after I had finished my radio show, Journeying to the Gateway, some drunk driving azzhole ran over a box of wires that connected my laptop to the Net. I did not get back internet service till this past Monday. Needless to say I have been scarred by this experience but plan to soothe my wounded spirit with some good music. So please make plans to stop by KJSR.net between 11PM and 1AM this Friday night to listen to some dance, some rap, some R&B and even some bossa nova [in honor of the horror that was that Germany vs Brazil azz stomping match during the World Cup]. And as always, thanks from me, DJ Chele Belle and the patron saint of the show, David Gandy, for your aural support.
