“This site opened my eyes”

Posted: October 21, 2010 by Jender in Do try this at home!, Good news

As a current male undergraduate beginning the grad school application process, I am glad to have found this site.

Although I had long noticed the disproportionate maleness of philosophy, I was utterly unaware of the ubiquity of discrimination, harassment, and prejudice women face.

This site opened my eyes. I have begun and will continue to actively refuse to take part in the behavior characterized on this site. I congratulate all women who have posted here on their courage, and hope that, one day, it will no longer be so necessary a virtue for women philosophers.
