Quote of the Day-Aug. 25, 2015

” Readers are plentiful, thinkers are rare.”
 Harriett Martineau

Often cited as the first female sociologist, she was an English social theorist and Whig writer. 1801-1876.

Martineau wrote many books and a multitude of essays from a sociological, holistic, religious, domestic, and perhaps most controversially, feminine perspective. She earned enough to be supported entirely by her writing, a rare feat for a woman in the Victorian era. Princess Victoria (later queen) enjoyed reading Martineau’s publications.

Martineau said of her own approach to writing: “when one studies a society, one must focus on all its aspects, including key political, religious, and social institutions”. She believed a thorough societal analysis was necessary to understand women’s status under men. Martineau introduced feminist sociological perspectives into her writing on otherwise overlooked issues such as marriage, children, domestic and religious life, and race relations.-Wikipedia
