This study seeks to explicate the processes through which feminist analyses and perspectives were during the early 1970s incorporated into undergraduate sociology degree programmes. The narrative it presents is based on data produced through semi-structured interviews with sixteen women sociologists whose political and professional biographies identify them more or less closely with these events, and on evidence obtained from a range of documentary and other secondary sources. I argue that feminism's curricular achievements may be understood as outcomes both of developments within the feminist public sphere and the institutionalised discipline of sociology and of struggles concerning the definition and structure of the 1970s sociological field. Only when attention is directed towards the social relations of academic production and the broader political, institutional and intellectual contexts in which these are located does the challenge of feminist sociology become fully apparent.
