Society for Women in Philosophy
Promoting the Work of Women in Philosophy since 1972
E-SWIP will soon be accepting nominations for the 2023 SWIP Distinguished Philosopher Award, formerly the Distinguished Woman Philosopher Award. The purpose of the award is to recognize persons who (a) have made outstanding contributions to the field of philosophy, through scholarship, teaching or service, and (b) have significantly promoted gender justice in the field. We encourage nomination of any philosopher who belongs to a gender group subject to discrimination or marginalization, including cis women, trans women, trans men, nonbinary individuals, and individuals with queer gender identities.
