Great Scots: Learmonth Dalrymple and the 'wild cry for...an impossible equality with man'

Professor Janine Hayward discusses the remarkable life of Miss Learmonth Dalrymple, who led a seven-year campaign to establish Otago Girls High in 1871, organised the petition to gain entry for women to the University of Otago, and played a leading role in achieving female suffrage in 1893.

This is the seventh public lecture in the 'Great Scots: Otago Men and Women Who Shaped New Zealand' series, organised by the Centre for Irish and Scottish Studies to mark the 150th anniversary of the University of Otago.
