Draga LjoÄiÄ‡ MiloÅ¡eviÄ‡ (1855â€“1926), was a Serbian physician, socialist, and feminist. She was the first Serbian woman to be accepted at the university of ZÃ¼rich in Switzerland in 1872. During the war between Serbia and the Ottoman Empire, she worked as a medical assistant in the army and received the grade of a Lieutenant. In 1879, she graduated and thereby became the first Serbian female doctor in medicine. She was permitted to practice in Serbia in 1881. She was also a leading figure within the newly founded Serbian women's rights movement. She was also the first female doctor in the Balkan Wars and the Great War, and one of only a dozen women working as doctors in Europe at that time.
On 22 February 2016, Google Doodle commemorated her 161st birthday.
