Sophie Bryant was the first woman to receive a Doctor of Science in England, her subject being mental and moral philosophy. She was one of the first three women to be appointed to a Royal Commission, the Bryce Commission on Secondary Education in 1894-95, and she was one of the first three women to be appointed to the Senate of London University. While on the Senate she advocated setting up a Day Training College for teachers which eventually became the Institute of Education. Later in 1904, when Trinity College Dublin opened its degrees to women, Bryant was one of the first to be awarded an honorary doctorate. She was also instrumental in setting up the Cambridge Training College for Women which eventually became Hughes Hall, the first postgraduate college in Cambridge.
