Book Overview

Ask most people to imagine a philosopher and they probably think of someone like Socrates--absent-minded, perhaps, but with a sharp intellect and a thirst for the truth. A woman juggling car pools and housework is not the first image that springs to mind, but women have taken huge steps in the philosophy profession over the past 50 years.

a must read for philosophers, grad students and faculty alike

Great collection of essays by established women philosophers (from both analytic and continental traditions). To this phd student in an analytic program, this book has been a godsend. It's both encouraged me (because some things *have* improved) and validated some of my own experiences (because some things haven't changed). What I took home from this book--women who succeed in philosophy do so because they learn to immerse themselves in their work and to negotiate the conflicts between their personal and professional identities. A big thanks to Linda Alcoff for this.
