Description: The conference held at the Faculty of Classics in Cambridge aims to explore and challenge women’s under-representation in philosophy in three ways. Firstly, by discussing the often-overlooked work of women philosophers, we hope to highlight their legacies and contributions to the discipline. Secondly, by analysing how gender imbalances are reproduced within academic philosophy, we aim to identify effective strategies in order to counteract these inequalities. Finally, and most importantly, we seek to celebrate the work of contemporary women philosophers, from graduate students to early career researchers and accomplished academics, thus securing space within philosophy for such work to thrive. Recordings made on 8th June 2017.
