Cambridge wives: influential women in Victorian Cambridge

Fri 19 Feb 2016 @ 19:00 - Sun 21 Feb 2016 @ 14:00

£260.00

Cambridge society changed dramatically after 1882 when College Fellows were allowed to be married. The group of wives formed a new society and became pioneers in their own right in education, mental health care and the suffrage movement. Their achievements show how the Victorian idea of a wife as an ‘angel in the house’ was very different from the reality.
