Just get over that feminist stuff

Posted: October 25, 2010 by Jender in feminism isn't philosophy

When I was on the job market (in the 80s) I had to deal with a lot of comments about the supposedly non-philosophical nature of my work. “Armchair sociology” was one descriptor used for my publications in feminist philosophy. It was reported to me that a senior (male) member of the Department said of me, “She’ll be a good philosopher, once she gets over this feminist stuff.”
