Abstract: The object of this dissertation is the historical investigation of the establishment of women in traditionally male-dominated disciplines in North America on the basis of the careers of four women at the end of the nineteenth and beginning of the twentieth century. This work focuses on the interdependence of this establishment in the context of the social and geographical mobility of these women, who, e.g. as archaeologists and journalists, multilaterally transcended their ascribed social roles.
