We are thrilled to announce that Sally Haslanger has been chosen as the Society for Women in Philosophy Distinguished Woman Philosopher of 2010.
Sally is one of the very best analytic feminists in the country and her work in feminist epistemology is lauded. Her work on critical race theory is also highly praised. The DWP Committee recognizes Sally for her extraordinary effort in coordinating the Women in Philosophy Task Force following the impact of “Changing the Ideology” as well as her initiative to change the culture of MIT toward a ‘woman-friendly’ environment. What distinguishes Sally is not just that she supports individuals one-on-one, but has created groups for support that extends beyond what any one person can do for other individuals. Her generosity extends to real feminist political action, that is, creating relationships among women that empower them to create and maintain their own frames of support and meaning.
We hope many of you will join us in celebrating Sally and her work at the Eastern Division meeting of the APA this December. Information on the panel and celebration will follow shortly.
