A guide to the most kickass women in philosophy''s history, written by some pretty cool women in philosophy''s present The history of philosophy has not done women justice: you''ve probably heard of Plato, Kant, Nietzsche and Locke - but what about Hypatia, Arendt, Oluwole and Young? The Philosopher Queens is a long-awaited book about women in philosophy by women in philosophy. It brings to centre stage twenty prominent women whose ideas have had a profound - but for the most part uncredited - impact on the world. You''ll learn about Ban Zhao, the first woman historian in ancient Chinese history; Angela Davis, perhaps the most iconic symbol of the American Black Power Movement; Azizah Y. al-Hibri, who examined the intersection of Islamic law and gender equality; and many more.
