This article is about the lives of three women, Philippa Fawcett, Charlotte Scott and Grace Young, who studied mathematics in Cambridge University in the period 1875-1895. It was first published in Mathematical Spectrum in 1997.* It was written in response to an earlier article in the same magazine entitled What became of the Senior Wranglers?, in which only one woman was mentioned. The 'Senior Wrangler' was the person achieving top marks in the final mathematics examinations, known as 'The Mathematics Tripos', at Cambridge.
