For International Women's Day, here are the articles on women philosophers from the online SEP (the author of the article is listed in parentheses):
Mary Astell (Alice Sowaal)
Simone de Beauvoir (Debra Bergoffen)
Catharine Trotter Cockburn(Patricia Sheridan)
Anne Conway (Sarah Hutton)
Damaris Masham (Sarah Hutton)
It seems a little light, doesn't it? In several of these cases, too, the scholarship has not developed very far. Several of the articles above are quite excellent, considering the state of scholarship; but in each case there needs to be much more work done. And think of all the women philosophers who do not yet have articles up: Anscombe, Stein, Conrad-Martius, Cavendish, Shepherd, etc. And, if it needs to be made clear, the claim that they need to be studied more is not simply an affirmative action policy; these women are often brilliant, and there is much to be learned from them. There is a lot of work to do.
