Women and Gender Minorities in Philosophy Reading Group

on hiatus Summer 2018

It's all in the name: this is a group for graduate and undergraduate students in philosophy who self-identify as women or gender minorities. Contact Sarah Vernallis svernall at for more information.

Our aims are to foster community and to create a space for graduate and undergraduate women & gender minority philosophers to develop their discussion skills and build confidence.

Anyone with an interest in philosophy is welcome, including non-majors, so if you think you might like to come please get in touch!
