AbstractBased on the author's dissertation, this article traces the development of the academic profession for women in England in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, focusing on women at Oxford, Cambridge and London universities. Unlike in the United States, where women's role in higher education expanded and then retracted during this period, British women slowly and steadily made inroads into this male-dominated profession.
