Though this isn’t strictly related to Modern Philosophy, it seems like something that people in every subfield should be aware of.
According to the site:
This website is devoted to collecting information about women currently working in philosophy around the globe. This list includes any woman with a Ph.D. in philosophy (regardless of location) who (1) has a job researching or teaching philosophy, (2) previously had a job in philosophy and is still active in philosophy, or (3) has published an article in a philosophy journal or a book in a philosophy list.
The goal is to make their work easily accessible so that the large number of women working in this profession will be recognized and appreciated. Please note this is a work in progress and we hope to make it as comprehensive as possible. We are counting on crowdsourcing. Please fill out the ‘Want to Add Someone?‘ if you are a woman in philosophy not currently in the database. In particular we encourage women to add themselves since this will ensure the most accurate information in their entry. We also encourage women from outside the U.S. to add themselves. If you are not a woman philosopher, or you are already included in the database, please encourage your female colleagues to add themselves, as well. This database started with combining several pre-existing, disparate, short google spreadsheets; we recognize there are many women philosophers not included in the database yet. Which is why we need your help! We hope that members of the profession will help us to make the database as complete as possible.
I guess the “currently working” clause means we can’t add Cavendish or Masham, but there is no shortage of awesome women working on early modern philosophy, so if you or someone you know should be on that list, submit them!
