Title: “The Early Women of Sociology”

These women made early contributions to the field of sociology although they may not be covered in classical sociology theory courses. From thoughts on marriage, sexuality, politics, race, economics, these women helped add a layer to sociological analyses that scholars today still use. This presentation aims to honor and highlight their works.
