I am a sophomore student in a Honors English
class and we are learning about philosophy.
For this section I have been selected
to teach a 45min class period on feminism,
feminist philosophies, and feminist philosophers.
I was wondering if there were any specific
feminist philosophers that you knew of
that are interesting to talk about. And
was also wondering if you knew yourself
or know a web site where i can find out
about feminist philosophies.
Thank you for your time,
That sounds like a great project.
I think that there are many feminists
who are philosophers, if not in actual
name in practice. For instance, I always
think of Marilyn French as a philosopher,
though not sure that she uses that description
and that's certainly not her formal training.
Meredith Michaels one of the authors
of The Mommy Myth is a philosopher
at Smith College and Ursula Le Guin,
though a futurist, I believe comes
out of the Philosophy department. In
terms of more general points on feminism
-- there are just so many to list.
I suggest looking around the feminist.com
and perhaps I can make more concrete
suggestions from there.
