The History of Academic Disciplines
Lauren Rowe
Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice Studies
After studying sociology for the past six years, I noticed a gap in the literature on women
in the history of sociology, which led me to believe that women did not play an important
role in the development of sociology. After reading literature by female sociologist
today, I read about women called the founding sisters, and the role they played in
sociology. This led me to question, what events happened in history that caused or
contributed to the exclusion of women in the history of sociology. After doing historical
research, I found a number of events that took place and contributed to women’s
exclusion from the history of sociology.
