The Indian woman, Dr. Anandi Gopal Joshi, was the first Indian woman to earn a degree in Western medicine, and also believed to be the first Hindu woman to set foot on American soil.
The Japanese woman, Dr. Kei Okami, was the first Japanese woman to obtain a degree in Western Medicine.
The Syrian woman is Dr. Sabat Islambooly.  Her name is spelled incorrectly on that photograph. 
For those interested, here’s more information on other women of color who attended and graduated from Women’s Medical College of Philadelphia in the past, with a focus on the Japanese-American women they accepted during the US WW2 internment of Japanese-Americans.

Peggy Carter helped found SHIELD after Steve “died”. 

It was founded at the camp that Steve trained at.

On marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, Agent Ward says “Someone really wanted our initials to spell SHIELD”

Guys. 

Peggy created and named the entire spy organization after STEVE’S SHIELD. 

OH MY FREAKING GOD.

also if you think Dumbledore kept Hagrid and let Remus attend Hogwarts exclusively out of compassion and goodness of his heart or whatever, and not because he needed extremely loyal half-giant and werewolf totally under his influence and guidance then

well okay but here are some questions:

1. why as soon as Voldemort disappeared Lupin was doomed to spend over a decade as a homeless man fighting for his survival, and only was given a chance of normal life (and a cure to ease his pain!) when Sirius escaped Azkaban

2. why Dumbledore who surely knew who opened the Chamber of Secrets never bothered to prove Hagrid’s innocence and kept him at Hogwarts as a gamekeeper with no right to use magic who never received proper education (when he could’ve been, I don’t know, next Newt Scamander) and then was sent to the freaking Azkaban (and he went to such length to prove Snape’s innocence, even though he was a Death Eater with a mark, so - you know - he can when he wants to)

3. why there were no more students hiding under the Whooping Willow during the full moon, surely Remus wasn’t the only one considering Fenrir Greyback alone specialized in attacking children - nevermind the rest of the werewolves

like, if you really think Harry was the only one raised as a pig for slaughter and it was such a special circumstance then you really should reread the books idk
