This chapter examines the contribution of Emily Davies to the feminist movement in Victorian England. Davies was the founder of the Girton College and the leader of the fight for the higher education of women. Though her role in establishing Girton College and her leadership in the campaign to have university local examinations opened to women were thoroughly explored, there is not much research about her feminist ideas. This chapter analyses Davies' feminist doctrine and compares hers with those of other prominent feminists of the period.

Keywords:   Emily Davies, feminist movement, Victorian England, Girton College, higher education
