In 1837, when Queen Victoria came to the throne, no institution of higher education in Britain was open to women. By the end of the century, a quiet revolution had occurred; women had penetrated even the venerable walls of Oxford and Cambridge universities and could earn degrees at the many new universities founded during Victoria's reign. During the same period, novelists increasingly put intellectually ambitious heroines - students, teachers, and frustrated scholars - at the centre of their books.
