About the topic
It is well known that women are still underrepresented in the field of academic philosophy. We not only aim to reflect on the causes of this situation, but also to take the first practical steps in order to make a difference. How to increase the visibility of women? How to make sure their stories are heard? What can we do to make most of the talents they have? This day hopes to give all women in philosophy the boost they need!
