Dutch feminist and pharmacist who was the first woman in the Netherlands with a degree in pharmacology. She was also active within the women's movement. She was the sister of Aletta Jacobs.
Charlotte Jacobs became the second female university student in the Netherlands when she started her studies in Amsterdam in 1877 and the first female pharmacist in 1879. She was a pharmacist at the Utrecht hospital in 1882-1884. In 1887-1912, she managed her own pharmacy in Batavia in the Dutch East Indies, and was thus the first female pharmacist in the Dutch East Indies. In 1908, she founded the first women's movement in the Dutch East Indies. She primarily fought for education opportunities for women in the colony, and not only for Dutch women. She returned to the Netherlands in 1912, where she was active within the women's suffrage and peace movements.
She died on 31 October 1916 in The Hague.
