Description:

Just over a hundred years ago, a few enlightened men and many hard-working and energetic women engaged Victorian society in a battle that was to last for eighty years. The women wanted an education – a chance to share in the benefits offered by the universities, which at that time were the sole prerogative of men.
This scrupulously researched and entertaining study of women’s education at Cambridge, from the founding of Girton and Newnham to the present day, reveals a sorry tale of academic intrigue and prejudice.
