2 thoughts on “Having Children and Doing Philosophy

  1. Not having children is something profoundly personal and private to me, and I find it annoying actually to read these sorts of discussions. Having said that, I can see why younger women would want to hear from some veterans about their experiences. But I also don’t think you can presume too much about some of us who are more advanced in the profession and don’t have children.

  2. Thanks for this point. Mothers do face significant obstacles that feminists need to discuss. But that can lead sometimes to an impression of caring only about mothers, and that’s extremely bad. I think it’s something we all need to be very careful about. Is that what you’re referring to?
