Martineau (1802-76) was a British social theorist and writer, often cited as the first female sociologist. She paid a long visit to America in the early 1830s meeting many abolitionists, a cause she supported although it was widely unpopular across the U.S. at that time. On her return she published her two volume work Society in America (1837) in which she expressed her views on both abolition and the education - or lack of it - of women, causing some controversy.
