Harriet Martineau (12 June 1802 - 27 June 1876) was a British social theorist and Whig writer, often cited as the first female sociologist. Martineau wrote many books and a multitude of essays from a sociological, holistic, religious, domestic, and perhaps most controversially, feminine perspective. She also translated various works by Auguste Comte, and she earned enough to support herself entirely by her writing, a rare feat for a woman in the Victorian era. The young Princess Victoria enjoyed reading Martineau’s publications. She invited Martineau to her coronation in 1838 - an event which Martineau described in great and amusing detail to her many readers. 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. The novelist Margaret Oliphant said 'as a born lecturer and politician [Martineau] was less distinctively affected by her sex than perhaps any other, male or female, of her generation'. 3
