Feminist Philosophy on WHY?Radio

One thought on “Feminist Philosophy on WHY?Radio

  1. Thank you Feminist Philosophy for once again supporting our show. For those of you who are not familiar with WHY?, we have had a handful of explicitly Feminist oriented topics and guests:

    Eva Kittay on caregiving: http://www.philosophyinpubliclife.org/Why/previousepisodes/episode8.html

    Martha Nussbaum on Empathy and sexual orientation: http://www.philosophyinpubliclife.org/Why/previousepisodes/episode16.html

    Robin Runge on domestic violence: http://www.philosophyinpubliclife.org/Why/previousepisodes/episode19.html

    Carol Gilligan on the reception and legacy of In A Different Voice: http://www.philosophyinpubliclife.org/Why/previousepisodes/episode25.html

    Stephanie Coontz on the history of marriage: http://www.philosophyinpubliclife.org/Why/previousepisodes/episode35.html

    Virginia Held on the ethics of care: http://www.philosophyinpubliclife.org/Why/previousepisodes/episode37.html

    There are of course women who have been guests on the show who talk about non-feminist topics. About 36% of our guests have been women, a far from perfect stat, but one that we are proud of and are consciously working to increase.

    We’d love to hear from you on Sunday at 5 p.m. central!!

    Thanks again FP!
