Affirmative Action for Women in Philosophy

Aktivität: Wissenschaftliche VeranstaltungenTeilnahme an ...


A recent report by the Gender Equality & Diversity Unit of the University of Vienna paints a clear picture: Women remain conspicuously underrepresented in the higher ranks of academia. In philosophy especially, the percentage of women drops dramatically on the way up the ladder. A worrying status quo that affirmative action policies are supposed to counteract, but what are the theoretical implications on the one hand and the practical realities on the other? Join us for a couple of drinks and a conversation with Tarja Knuuttila & Elisabeth Holzleithner on the cans and cannots of affirmative action opposing the glass ceiling, leaky pipelines and gender bias.
