Jacobs wasn´t the first Dutch female university student, but she was the first one who completed a university study. See the Dutch Wikipedia-entry for details.


Article not ready for prime time[edit]

This article is full of floral language and has very few inline citations. Very upsetting considering the importance of this historical figure. I am sure the ultra-rightwing and the anti-Jewish segments of the internet are having a ball vandalizing this page on a regular basis, so maybe it needs to be locked until a scholar can get a hold of it.

"|influences = people to be amazed by dogs" Looks like vandalism to me, I removed it. -- (talk) 11:30, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

"suffrage feminine"[edit]

I don't know who wrote this, but "suffrage feminine" simply isn't English! (talk) 21:21, 26 August 2017 (UTC)

picky picky (me)[edit]

I'm not comfortable with this sentence:

"Finding the trial was successful, she introduced the method of birth control in the Netherlands (still widely known as the Dutch Cap)[2] and began counseling women on its use.[11]"

  • Firstly, it appears to imply that the Netherlands is (are?) still widely known as the Dutch cap. That's not what you meant, and would be addressed by a bit of resequencing.
  • Secondly, I don't think it's called "Dutch cap" in the Netherlands (though I'm always happy to be corrected), and the sentence appears to concern its introduction in the Netherlands. How about adding " English speaking countries"?

I'm sorry to be picky because as far as I can see overall you've performed a formidable rescue mission on the entry. But - not for the first time - having had a thought I get an overwhelming urge to share. Feel free to ignore if you don't agree. I don't have access to your source, so I didn't attempt to edit your text. AND very best wishes for what remains of 2019! Charles01 (talk) 20:09, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

Charles01 I love it when you are picky :) . And you are correct, London-based sexologist Norman Haire apparently first called it the Dutch cap which then became widely used.p 181. Thanks for your help! SusunW (talk) 22:55, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
