Building a Legacy: Women in Social Education, 1784-1984

Abstract

Mary Ritter Beard was a pioneering scholar in women's history and a social reformer during the Progressive Era. She campaigned for women's suffrage, advocated improved conditions for the working class, and critiqued women's education, but it was her vision of women's history that most vividly shaped her life and work. It is primarily in this context that she made her contribution to the dialogue on social education.
