Women in the University

Glasgow University have produced an invaluable online resource for gender studies and women's history studies with their Women in the University section of The University of Glasgow Story website. In this fabulous resource, Glasgow Uni have mapped out and produced accurate records for every notable woman who ever attended the University since women were first permitted entry to higher education.
