About Blue Stockings
The year is 1896. Few universities accept women at all; those that do consider them to be intellectually inferior to their male counterparts. The women who chose to pursue academics are disdainfully labelled “Blue Stockings”. Cambridge University’s doors have opened to a cohort of excited and ambitious young women, but how will the institution adapt? Over the course of an academic year, we follow the journey of four female students as they fight for their right to graduate alongside their male counterparts. By Jessica Swale, directed by Eleanore Tapscott.
