discussing women in philosophy. (Starts about 35 minutes in.) Unfortunately, the items before us ran over, so we didn’t get to all the things that they’d promised to ask us about!
This week the NY Times will have five articles by and about women in philosophy. Sally’s is a great beginning. A sample:
With these numbers, you don’t need sexual harassment or racial harassment to prevent women and minorities from succeeding, for alienation, loneliness, implicit bias, stereotype threat, microaggression, and outright discrimination will do the job. But in a world of such small numbers, harassment and bullying is easy.
Odd but familiar is a recurring charge in the comments (as of now, 3:30 am cst): Sally hasn’t explained why there are so few women.
One’s reminded of the unpleasant joke, “Aside from that, Mrs Lincoln, how was the play?”
