About the book

Girton - Thirty years ... is a book much bigger than its title. Not only is it an iconic book about the first Oxbridge women's college to admit men, but a stimulating discussion of the issues facing higher education in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries.

Through personal histories, this book, which has been published to coincide with the opening of Girton's new Archive building, with its priceless collection of documents about women in higher education, shows to what extent the outlook of students and Fellows at Girton changed after men were admitted in 1976. Other fascinating accounts throw a bright light on the influence of higher education in general and its context in society as a whole.

Edited by Val Horsler
