Women, Work, and the Academy

Women, Work, and the Academy written by Alison Wylie, Janet R. Jakobsen, and Gisela Fosado in now available from the Barnard Center for Research on Women (BCRW). There is also a video of a panel on the topic and other information on the website.

It is interesting to ask about to what extent the issues that women philosophers have in the academy are part of a more general phenomenon and to what extent they are endemic to philosophy as a profession. It is clear that there is some compounding of causes that results in the overall under-representation of women in the profession. But just exactly what is it.
Knowledge and Experience has some links to further thoughts on these issues.
