A part of the citation for Jennifer Saul:

Professor Saul is one of the founders of and co-bloggers for Feminist Philosophers, a trans-continental forum that highlights gender-bias in the academy. The Feminist Philosophers blog has become an example of a collective feminist work that has led to other initiatives aimed at campaigning against sexism and gender bias such as the Gendered Conference Campaign, which aims to tackle under representation of female philosophers at academic events world-wide.

The blog has been immensely important to me and surely many others. Thank you, Jenny

    Technology)

    Amherst)

  2. Whaddayamean, wish you could go? This implies we won’t see you here in D.C. Sorry to miss you! Gogo city will NOT be the same without you! (Although, of course, it remains Go-Go City.)

    Glad to see the snow return for the holiday, although it’s a thoroughly “green” Christmas here in DC!
