Behave Badly Mug

Our Behave Badly range was produced to coincide with the Rising Tide exhibition, held at Cambridge University Library in 2019/20. The exhibition explored the history of women as students and academics at the university, and their struggles to be accepted as equals in what for many years had been a male-dominated institution. The wonderful motto 'Behave Badly' was devised by Lisa Jardine, a historian who became the first female fellow at Jesus College in 1976. She had the phrase printed on badges and distributed them to her fellow female academics. This white ceramic mug reproduces the motto and logo from Jardine's original badge design.
