Women cannot dispense with the physiological limitations of their sex, however hard they try. Women's nerve centres are fragile, pressure may weaken them, leaving them unfit for motherhood. In short, the higher education of women may be detrimental to their physiology, to the family, to the future of our society.

Blue Stockings is looking for a prod team and we want YOU to be part of it! Help us follow along with the first women at Girton in their fight for their right to graduate from Cambridge and explore how sexism and classism still define Cambridge as an institution - no experience required, just enthusiasm and ideas! Have a look at the script here https://www.dramaonlinelibrary.com/plays/blue-stockings-iid-153717
