About Author

Emily Davies

Sarah Emily Davies was an English woman who created Girton College in Cambridge. She advocated for suffrage and women's access to higher education. In her youth, she attended National Association for the Promotion of Social Science meetings and became friends with Barbara Bodichon and Elizabeth Garrett Anderson. After relocating to London with her mother in 1862, she worked for and edited the English Woman's Journal before joining the Langham Place Group. She co-founded the London Schoolmistresses' Association and the Kensington Society, both of which advocated for universal suffrage, despite her personal belief that only unmarried women and widows should have the right to vote. After leaving Girton in 1904, Davies served as secretary of the National Society for Women's Suffrage's London section before joining the Conservative and Unionist Women's Franchise Association. She died in London at the age of 91. Davies' rigorous ideas on education were contentious during her lifetime, but historians have increasingly seen her achievements with more sympathy. To commemorate Girton College's 150th anniversary, Baroness Hale dedicated a blue plaque in 2019 honoring founders Emily Davies and Barbara Bodichon.
