Girton College, Cambridge

Girton College is one of the 31 constituent colleges of the University of Cambridge. The college was established on 16 October 1869 by Emily Davies, Barbara Bodichon and Lady Stanley of Alderley as the first women's college in Cambridge. In 1948, it was granted full college status by the university, marking the official admittance of women to the university. In 1976, it was the first Cambridge women's college to become coeducational.
