As Britain staggers towards the twentieth century, it faces the terrifying reality of intelligent young women wanting to study at Cambridge University.  To prevent this prospect from becoming a national calamity, the university ensures that such women complete their studies without a degree.   These unmarriageable women will be unqualified for suitable employment, so surely the rule will deter women from unnatural ambitions.  Blue Stockings is the heart-breaking and inspiring story of a group of young women determined to graduate and change higher education for generations to come.
