IAPh 2021: Women Philosophers Through History

There are no women in the history of philosophy? Wrong! Find out about women philosophers from antiquity to the present at the IAPh conference 2021. Although we can only come together virtually this year, we can still make history! 

Some selected talks from our session on the history of women philosophers show that women have always been philosophers and we need to reassess their contributions to define the future of philosophy.
