This book presents the often overlooked contributions of 15 extraordinary women sociologists of the 19th and early 20th centuries: their work, history and voices. Lengermann and Niebrugge-Brantley's thorough text is designed to give students a complete picture of each woman's contribution to sociology and social theory; they offer for each subject a biographical background, a thematic analysis of the social theory, and selections from the woman's own writings. The structure of the book allows instructors to craft their teaching around the text, by focusing each chapter on one specific sociologist, instructors are free to incorporate the text as they like, serving as either a supplement to sociology and women's studies courses, or as a primary text.
