The experience of women in the philosophical academy is different to men. With blogs such as beingawomaninphilosophy.wordpress.com showing the rife sexism, it is no wonder there are so few professional women philosophers. How do we challenge this lack of representation and improve this situation?
Rebecca Roache (Royal Holloway), Danielle Sands (Royal Holloway), Beverley Clack (Oxford Brookes), and Richard Pettigrew (Bristol) will discuss these issues at Royal Holloway, a constituent college of the University of London originally founded for the education of women:
- Why are women philosophers ignored?
- What about the gender gap?
- The experience of being a female philosopher
- Balancing an academic career and family life
- Interactions and micro-aggression
- Career and Glass-ceilings
Women in Philosophy is free of charge and open to everyone to attend. However, space is limited, and priority is given to current and prospective philosophy students.
