Emily Davies (1830–1921) was an English early feminist and suffragist who is best remembered for her pioneering campaign to allow women access to university education. Davies was one of the founders of Girton College, Cambridge and served as Mistress between 1873–1875. This volume, first published in 1866, discusses the state of female education after the ages of 16-18. Davies explores the contemporary differences between male and female education and advocates women's entry into higher education, providing specific suggestions on how this could occur and the benefits it could bring to both men and women. The concerns of early feminists and the differing contemporary attitudes towards female education are presented in this volume, which also includes the 1854 pamphlet Remarks on the Education of Girls by feminist Bessie Rayner Parkes and an influential 1854 pamphlet summarising the legal restrictions of married women by feminist activist Barbara Bodichon.
