Emily Davies (1830-1921) founded Girton College, the first girls college at Cambridge. She was also a renowned suffragist and feminist.
Anne Jemima Clough (1820-1892) was a suffragist and established Newnham Collage, which started out as a hostel for women traveling to attend lectures at the University.
