Invercargill: Invercargill United Friendly Societies’ Dispensary Committee

Abstract

Although the apprenticeship system did not officially preclude the involvement of women, it was an education system dominated by males. Registered pharmacists tended to be males and, therefore, it was easier for intending male pharmacists to find someone to take them on as an apprentice. This began to transform as attitudes towards women in the workforce changed after World War II, and once pharmacy education moved beyond the apprenticeship system. The story above is a humorous example of the entry of a female into what had previously been a male realm.
