The UK Medical Act of 1876 should have a Wikipedia page.  It is the law that allowed women to widely train as physicians.  If a new entry was written for this bill, it could be linked to the pages for Elizabeth Garrett Anderson, Sophia Jex-Blake, Russell Gurney, London School of Medicine for Women and Medical Act.

The physicians on this list could all be added to Women in Medicine#Pioneers.
