This paper describes and examines the feminist world view as a state of consciousness, which informs the scholarly and professional work of those who hold it. The context of the paper is the relatively unrecognized contribution of feminist women in the sport sciences, particularly in the 1950-1975 formative period in the subdiscipline of sport psychology. The peculiar absence of women in the mainstream histories of sport psychology is explored and a cohort of women contributors is presented.
