Dr. Mary Somerville Parker Strangman was a Fellow of RCSI, a suffragette and the first female politician in Co. Waterford in 1912. She used her position within Waterford to tend to the most needy within the city, often treating them for free. She stood up for her beliefs and fought for female enfranchisement and health care during a time when the needs of women and children were often set aside.
