Title: První žena v Karolinu

(The first woman in Carolinum)

Abstract: The paper deals with the life and professional destinies of Marie Zdeňka Baborová (1877 – 1937), the first Czech woman-doctor of philosophy. It summarizes basic informations about the possibilities of higher study of women in the Czech lands at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. It recalls the regulations that allowed women access to universities in the Austro-Hungarian monarchy. Using the example of Marie Zdeňka Baborová it demonstrates the problems that the first female students of the university had to face with during their studies and in building a scientific career.
