Women in Philosophy Course on Highbrow

I’m really excited to be launching my Women in Philosophy mini-course today over on highbrow. It’s a ten day course that covers everything and everyone from Diotima and Hypatia to Judith Butler and Kimberlé Crenshaw. It’s been hugely stimulating and challenging to write, and has provoked me into thinking once again about the misogyny and sexism of the Western philosophical tradition. Here’s a list of all the philosophers covered:

  • Diotima of Mantinea
  • Hypatia of Alexandria
  • Héloïse
  • Hildegard von Bingen
  • Mary Wollstonecraft
  • Simone de Beauvoir
  • Hannah Arendt
  • Judith Butler
  • Martha Nussbaum
  • Kimberlé Crenshaw
  • Kathryn T. Gines

There are so many other philosophers and thinkers I could have included. But in a mini-course with only ten five-minute lessons, space was limited. If you sign up to Highbrow (the course is a premium course, but you can sign up for a month for free), let me know how you get on.
