The book presents several philosophical themes in each chapter which include each female pioneer's beliefs about human nature and the purpose of life, the author's answers to questions such as how education "ought" to be, how women "ought" to be educated, and the role of women in society, as well as the type of curriculum and pedagogy that emerge from the woman's specific philosophical stance.
