Unsung social worker: Katharine Bement Davis (1860-1935), social worker, prison reformer, and sex researcher
Davis’s work in political economy and sociology convinced her that women’s crime generally resulted from low wages, inequality, and inadequate employment. She set out to expand women’s options through classes and vocational training.
Davis moved immediately to the Rockefeller Bureau of Social Hygiene. Under her direction, the bureau expanded its research into the broader fields of public health and social hygiene. In 1920, she undertook an ambitious study of female sexuality publishing a report entitled “Factors in the Sex Life of Twenty-two Hundred Women” (1929), a landmark work that showed that behaviors considered deviant were common among college and club women. Even before its publication, the board convinced Rockefeller to terminate Davis’s appointment.
