Women in British Universities, 1870-1939; and Students: A Gendered History.


'Fascinating' 'A charming and compelling writer [...] deliciously smart [...] A loud, disturbing, eloquent, and crucial rallying cry against the concept of a "post-feminist" world.' 'There's a certain twisted pleasure to be had from revisiting some of the wild and wonderful things that men (and women, too) have believed in the past about women's incapacity for education and employment.' The Guardian
