Women in History--Leta Stetter Hollingworth: Educator and Advocate for Gifted Children
Deeds, Jan
Journal of Women in Educational Leadership, v6 n1 p5-6 Jan 2008
This article profiles Leta Steller Hollingworth, who gave what she had to human beings through her life as a poet, a scholar, a researcher, a feminist, an educational psychologist, and a powerful advocate for gifted children. Hollingworth's research during her graduate studies focused on the psychology of women. At a time when women's professional and personal lives were socially and legally restricted, Hollingworth used "her mastery of the artful techniques of scientific research and report" to challenge the beliefs that supported those restrictions. What she offered to gifted children was strong research that built the foundation of gifted education.
