Some experiences as a woman in philosophy

Posted: September 29, 2016 by jennysaul in low numbers of women, Maleness of philosophy, sexual harassment, Uncategorized

-Being the only woman in a class of 15 men

-Having to pull aside a colleague to tell him I am in class to learn and not to be sexually harassed

-Being pursued rather aggressively by a professor only to be silenced on behalf of your academic career

-Having a classmate to ask me just how gay I am on a scale of 1 to 7 after denying him an unsolicited sexual advance
