‘It may be a pity for women that they are born women, but in running the intellectual race, it’s unlikely they will succeed, and perilous to even try.’

1886. Girton College, Cambridge, the first college in Britain to admit women. Over one tumultuous academic year, the ‘blue stockings’ – ‘unnatural,
educated women’ fight to study and gain a degree alongside their male counterparts. But little do they anticipate the hurdles in their way: the distractions of love, the cruelty of the class divide or the strength of the opposition, who will do anything to stop them.
