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. This tote combines Jardine's rallying cry with a design inspired by the illuminated manuscripts in the university's collections.
