Training Women for a New "Women's Profession": Physiotherapy Education at the University of Toronto, 1917-40.
Heap, Ruby
History of Education Quarterly, v35 n2 p135-58 Sum 1995
Describes the origins, development, and impact of the physiotherapy program at the University of Toronto (Canada) in the period between World War I and World War II. Maintains that control by physicians eventually led to a "women's profession," which meant deference to male authority and less independence for female practitioners. (CFR)
