Davies had to be very careful since she tried to open “a college like a man’s.” She had to be sure that “masculine” subjects were a part of the college so women could get the same education as a man. Davies believed that if women were held at the same standard of education as a man, all achievements would be considered equally valid.

Polysyndeton is when the author uses a repetitive amount of a certain conjunction to emphasize a certain point.
