What are you doing about what it’s like?

A new blog is open for business, What We’re Doing About What It’s Like. From the About page:

This blog is a sister-blog to What is it Like to Be a Woman in Philosophy?. It’s devoted exclusively to discussions– anonymous or not– of what individuals and institutions are doing in response to problems for women in philosophy. These problems may be ones raised on What is it Like, they may be the sort of thing the Gendered Conference Campaign is calling attention to, or they may be something else entirely.

This is not a place to raise concerns about whether there are any problems for women in philosophy at all. There are plenty of other blogs that welcome such discussions, but we don’t. This is a place for people who agree that there’s a problem to have productive discussions about what can be done. The blog will, accordingly, be heavily moderated with this in mind.

It’ll start publishing stories in the week of 11 April. Go tell us what you’re doing!
