HYPATIA: A Journal of Feminist Philosophy

Hypatia: A Journal of Feminist Philosophy

Hypatia is a forum for cutting edge work in feminist philosophy. Since its inception in the mid-1980s, Hypatia has been a catalyst for broadening and refining feminist philosophy as well as an invaluable resource for those who teach in this area. Feminist philosophy arises out of diverse traditions and methods within philosophy and is also richly interdisciplinary in orientation.

Hypatia’s commitment to the development of feminist philosophy entails that, in all its policies and practices, Hypatia actively reflect and engage the diversity within feminism itself, the diverse experiences and situations of women, and the diverse forms that gender takes across the globe. Promoting diversity within feminist philosophy and philosophy in general is thus one of Hypatia’s core objectives.

The editors are committed to publishing articles that are broadly accessible. Hypatia serves as a resource for the wider women's studies community, for philosophers generally, and for all those interested in philosophical issues raised by feminism.

Hypatia reviews are now available online at Hypatia Reviews Online

HYPATIA: A Journal of Feminist Philosophy 
Essays on the Place of Women in the Profession of Philosophy
Edited by Ann E. Cudd

Hypatia has just published a new Virtual Issue: an open access, online collection of articles on women in philosophy published by Hypatia over the years, assembled by Hypatia co-editor, Ann Cudd.  This virtual issue brings together essays published over a twenty-year time span that address the question of women’s place in the profession of philosophy. It includes essays about women in the history of philosophy; empirical studies of the numbers of women at various stages in their careers; analytical essays about why women, including specifically women of color, are not reaching parity with white men in the profession; and what women are doing to change the representation of women in philosophy. By highlighting this important research, the virtual issue will contribute to the groundswell of efforts to make philosophy a more welcoming place for diverse people and ideas, thereby also improving the quality of philosophical thought.

Read the issue here.
The introduction can be found here.

In addition, the excellent paper, "Quantifying the Gender Gap," by Molly Paxton, Carrie Figdor and Valerie Tiberius, will appear as a "Musing" in the Fall issue of Hypatia (27.4), and has just been published online, on EarlyView.
