    Victorian idealization of women as 'ministering angels' had the practical result of limiting their education to 'accomplishments', providing little to occupy their minds. This work by Emily Davies, who went on to found Girton College, makes a forthright and vigorous case for the extension of professional and university education to women. First published in 1866 and reprinted, with an introduction by Janet Howarth, in 1988.
