Information

It's Cambridge, 1897, and Girton College is host to four young women dreaming of a real education. Yet when the men graduate, the girls will leave with nothing but the stigma of being a 'blue stocking'- unnatural, unqualified and unmarriageable. Principal Elizabeth Welsh is determined to win the girls the right to graduate, but with the university, town and England fighting against them, it will be a struggle...

BLUE STOCKINGS follows Welsh and the Girton Girls over an exciting, comic and moving year of politics, love and knowledge, battling to change the history of education.
