Ground-breaking and original, this book debunks the myth that empirical social science has been dominated by its male founders and methodologists. The author re-analyses the critical role British, French and American women played in creating the field from the 16th through the early 20th centuries. Included are Mary Astell, Mary Wollstonecraft, Harriet Martineau, Beatrice Webb, Catharine Macauley, Florence Nightingale, Madame de Staël and Jane Addams.
