In 2016 over half the students in Trinity are female, but in the 1960s a woman on campus was a rare sight. Women had to be off campus by 6.30pm, there was no maternity leave and chaperones were appointed for the first women scholars on campus. These are some of memories recalled in this fascinating look back at life for women in Trinity college.
