Women’s education pioneers: following in the footsteps of ‘Hurricane Jessie’
Along with the centenary of the first women’s right to vote, 2018 marks the 150th anniversary of the special examinations for women at the University of London. This important milestone in history will be celebrated throughout the year through our Leading Women campaign and a full programme of events aimed at raising awareness about the University of London’s crucial role in extending higher education to women.
Senate House Library will mark the occasion with an exhibition and programme of events from July 2018, exploring one hundred and fifty years of women’s fight for equal rights in the areas of education, politics, employment and reproduction, with a focus on the achievements of London’s pioneers of progress.
