The Men’s Studies Association of NOMAS wishes to identify and honor the many American scholars who, since the late 1960’s, have been:

Notable Career Contributors to Social Science, from a Clearly Feminist Perspective

.While any such list inevitably will be incomplete, the MSA has tentatively identified the following qualified social scientists:

Paula Gunn Allen, Kathleen Barry, Pauline Bart, Sandra Bem, Jesse Bernard, Lee Bowker, Martha Burt, Paula Caplan, Phyllis Chesler, Nancy Chodorow, Patricia Collins, Nancy Cott, Gail Dines, Riane Eisler, Cynthia Fuchs Epstein, Joanne Evansgardner, Melissa Farley, Michelle Fine, Nancy Folbre, Estelle Friedman, Jo Freeman, Carol Gilligan, Marija Gimbutas, Kathleen Grady, Donna Haraway, Nancy Henley, Judith Herman, Arlie Hochschild, Donna Hughes, Carol Nagy Jacklin, Allan Johnson, Suzanne Kessler, Michael Kimmel, Mary Koss, Robin Lakoff, Louise Lamphere, Judith Long Laws, Gerda Lerner, Harriet Lerner, Eleanor Maccoby, Virginia O’Leary, Chris O’Sullivan, Mary Brown Parlee, Joseph Pleck, Janice Raymond, Rayna Reiter, Pam Roby, Ruby Rohrlich, Esther Rothblum, Paula Rothenberg, Alice Rossi, Diana Russell, Virgina Russo, Peggy Reeves Sanday, Joan Scott, Ruth Seidel, Carolyn Sheriff, Julia Sherman, Elaine Showalter, Dorothy Smith, Anne Fausto-Sterling, Catharine Stimpson, Sandra Tangri, Carol Tavris, Dorothy Tennov, Barrie Thorne, Ethyl Tobach, Rhoda Unger, Naomi Weisstein, Sally Roesch Wagner, Barbara Strudler Walston, Lenore Weitzman, Rebecca Whisnant, Gail Wyatt.

 The MSA welcomes additional nominations, by June 1, 2013.

In a future second stage, we plan to identify and to especially honor and celebrate a smaller select group of great feminist scholars who were visionary feminist thinkers and leaders, asked new questions, opened our eyes to the mechanisms of patriarchy, and, brought science into new areas, including violence against women.

The MSA’s final decisions will be announced in Summer 2013 at and other national media.
