Making women philosophers and their achievements visible is the main concern of the Center. That is why we have created the Directory, in 2016, a project that profiles over 200 women philosophers, scientists and literary scientists, and features their biographies, published works, online and secondary sources for additional background.
To these entries we also link our Encyclopedia of Concise Concepts and our Sight and Sound page, that offers categorised videos, which you can find on YouTube.
