Great Scots – Learmonth Dalrymple and the “wild cry for… an impossible equality with man”.
Prof. Janine Hayward talks about the remarkable life of Miss Learmonth Dalrymple of Port Chalmers. Miss Dalrymple led a seven-year campaign to establish Otago Girls' High School in 1871, organised the petition to gain entry for women at the University of Otago, and played a leading role in achieving female suffrage in 1893.
She is described as having ‘strong adherence to feminine decorum’ and campaigning for the education of women and girls with ‘discreet persistence’.
