Book For Thought-- Women in Philosophy: What Needs to Change?

An exciting event is happening this Fall! It's not the return of pumpkin pie or even Thanksgiving dinners (maybe an exception), but it is a new book that will be coming out in the midst of all the conversations pertaining to women in philosophy. The book, Women in Philosophy: What Needs to Change? will be a push forward in the discussion of the lack and the underrepresentation of women within the philosophical field. Edited by Katrina Hutchison and Fiona Jenkins, the book is a compilation of critical essays written by...nope not men...but women(!) in the philosophy field trying to find an answer to the question of "why philosophy continues to be inhospitable to women and what can be done to change it" (Oxford University Press, 2013). It is not in bookstores yet, but pre-orders are available so for your next read in the Fall, be sure to pick this book up and leave a review of how the book is in continuing the discussion of the underrepresentation of women in philosophy.
