Jacobina Félicie (Jacqueline Felice de Almania, in French). 13-14th century.
Originally from Florence, Italy, Jacobina was a medical doctor and midwife living in Paris, France. At that time there were eight female doctors registered in Paris. In 1322, Jacobina was put on trial for unlawful practice. Many testimonies were given in her support, that she cured patients where other doctors had failed and that she was a better doctor and surgeon than any of the French doctors. However, the court reasoned that male doctors understood the subject of medicine better than females. She was banned from practicing medicine and threatened with excommunication if she ever did so again. This decision is considered to have banned women from academic study in medicine in France and obtaining licenses until the 19th-century.

Here is a side by side comparison of how The New York Times has profiled Michael Brown — an 18 year old black boy gunned down by police — and how they profiled Ted Bundy, one of the most prolific serial killers of all time.
