Women, Philosophy and Religion

Shining a spotlight on female philosophers and theologists

Women have influenced philosophy and religion throughout history, yet despite their contributions they remain largely unrecognized in comparison to their male counterparts. This campaign aims to celebrate the work of female scholars from the past to the present day – read exclusive articles that tackle the issue of gender, new research from our female authors, and the latest books that highlight the contributions of women in these fields. All chapters and articles are free to read until 16 September 2019.
