Edited by Katrina Hutchison and Fiona Jenkins
Reviews and Awards
"This is an important volume for philosophy as an institution. It raises many difficult questions for the institution of philosophy with regard to its own internal injustices and what is being left out of academic philosophy itself. The articles also offer many useful suggestions for how we might do things differently, so that more women want to be philosophers and help to change the discipline so that it can more closely resemble what it has long claimed to be: a universal discipline, inclusive of human thought." --Hypatia: A Journal for Feminist Philosophy
"Women in Philosophy is a call for changes that need to be adopted by all philosophers but especially our male colleagues. Every philosophy department needs to have at least one copy of this book so that it can be passed around and then discussed. The discussions prompted will be philosophically challenging because the book is philosophy done well. May those discussions also bring about the kinds of changes that make philosophy better."--Peg O'Connor, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
"This is a fantastic collection on the gender imbalance in Anglophone philosophy. The essays represent a variety of approaches to the problem of women's underrepresentation. It is especially important that the book not only offers a way for philosophers to learn about psychological and sociological results that have a bearing on how we organize ourselves, but also a way for us to become more reflective about distinctively philosophical aspects of our practice."--Sally Haslanger, Professor of Philosophy, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
