Royal College of Midwives
The Royal College of Midwives! Midwives, most of whom were women, were important healers in Western societies for centuries until the professionalization (and masculinization) of the medical field pushed them to the margins. Not sure if this college is a remnant of the old days or an example of the growing popularity of midwives in the 21st century.
