Women in Philosophy

WOMEN IN PHILOSOPHY is a series of lectures organized by the Institute of Philosophy at the University of Graz. The series is sponsored by two prizes awarded to the Institute of Philosophy in Graz for having supported women in recent years. The objectives of the series are to promote philosophy in Graz and to narrow the gender gap in the profession. The events will bring some of the world’s leading philosophers and thereby facilitate the contact of students and faculty with internationally acclaimed women philosophers.
