This essay is concerned with the contribution of women to education as a discipline in both its practice and its theory. Women scholars operated on both a highly individualistic and a collective level. A biographical approach is as helpful as a view that emphasises "networking" and collaboration in the service of a common cause. Using both approaches, this essay examines the major contribution that women made to the development of education as a serious subject during the nineteenth century.
