Somerville for Women tells the story of the pioneering Oxford women's college whose alumnae include a Nobel prizewinner for chemistry, two prime ministers, and a whole school of novelists. A lively account of a remarkable institution, it is also an important source for the history of the University of Oxford, and for many aspects of women's studies.
