It's fair to say that the history of philosophy has not done women justice: you've probably heard the names Plato, Kant, Nietzsche and Locke but what about Hypatia, Arendt, Oluwole and Young? The Philosopher Queens brings to centre stage twenty prominent women whose ideas have had a profound, but for the most part uncredited, impact on the world.
Learn about Ban Zhao, the first woman historian in ancient Chinese history; Angela Davis, perhaps the most iconic symbol of the American Black Power Movement; Azizah Y. al-Hibri, known for examining the intersection of Islamic law and gender equality, and many more.
A guide to women in philosophy's history written by women in philosophy's present, for anyone who has wondered where the women philosophers are, or anyone curious about the history of ideas. It's time to meet the Philosopher Queens.
