It is an opportunity to honor her impressive career and dedication to the study of female thinkers and to highlight the impact and significance of her work in philosophy.

Since taking the helm of the center, she has transformed it into a true melting pot of knowledge. She has made it a place where the voices and ideas of women philosophers from centuries past are heard and celebrated. Through her tireless research and passion for recognizing women philosophers, she has ushered in a new era of thought and emphasized the importance of the female perspective in philosophy.
