|Caption||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.|
