372). There are three basic types of feminist pathfinders (Stromquist, forthcoming): (1) Individual feminists who embrace and uphold non-traditional gender values in interaction with other people Literature review and a micro-foundational approach 27 (2) Groups of women and feminists who gather together, either on planned or unplanned occasions, to decry the lack of women’s rights, or to make particular demands upon local and national authorities (3) Organized feminist groups with the staff and resources to target specific goals and missions The feminist action detailed in this study was found to span these three forms of feminist activism.

The institutionalization of women’s studies and feminist scholarship has been the result of just this kind of intellectual activism. PART II: A MICROFOUNDATIONAL APPROACH The Construct of a Microfoundation I borrow the concept of microfoundation from structuralist paradigms, agency theories, and historical sociology. It centers on social actors as an analytical category to explain social action that reproduces or transforms social structures within a historical process (Abrams, 1982; Sztompka, 1991; Emirbayer & Mische, 1998; Archer, 2000).

I suggest that the dimension of social activism could supplement the stories in ways that demonstrate why and how these feminist activists enacted their identities—including worldviews, interests/needs, and motivations for social action—to formalize women’s studies and to attain cultural and symbolic capital for this new field. In each case, the scope, degree, and time line of the institutionalization of women’s studies depended upon the centrality of feminist values and the impact of those values on the movement projects.
