Blue Stockings

1896. Girton College, Cambridge, the first college in Britain to admit women. The Girton girls match their male peers grade for grade yet whilst the men graduate with a full degree, the women leave with nothing but the stigma of being a 'blue stocking' - an unnatural, educated women. Tess and her fellow first years are determined to fight for their education and win the right to graduate. But little do they anticipate the hurdles in their way: the distractions of love, the cruelty of the class divide, or the strength of the opposition, who will do anything to stop them.
