Women's Education

Active selection:    
Women's Education. The schools for girls that did exist in the mid-19th century were a disgrace in themselves, but when women dared to establish a proper system, and even tried to enter universities, most people were outraged.  Undeterred, the pioneers continued their work.  Left inset:  Charlot Bronte, in Jane Eyre, vividly describes conditions that existed at girls' schools in the early 19th century.  Top right inset: Frances Mary Buss (1827-1894), a pioneer in the education of girls who founded the famous North London Collegiate School.  Original artwork for illustrations on pp16-17 of Look and Learn issue no 1015 (22 August 1981).  Lent for scanning by The Gallery of Illustration.
