В 1920 году Кембриджский университет отказывается принимать женщин в студенты

At the height of the 20th century, the world had recovered from the World War, and the development of social ideas was underway, as well as emancipation and feminism. The council of the Oxford University, the oldest in Great Britain, took a decision to allow women to study at the university. The first female students appeared the same year. But Oxford’s eternal rival, the University of Cambridge, maybe out of spite, declined the proposal to admit women. Cut off your nose to spite your face? But in the end, Cambridge surrendered to the public pressure.
