Women Philosophers

Dr. Kate Lindemann has done the world a great service...she has been researching all the women philosophers over the ages...and she has created a site where these women can be accessed, instead of omitted from history and philosophy. Many students taking philosophy classes never learn about women philosophers. This site will hopefully change that!
For instance, the Father of Philosophy, Pythagoras, was surrounded by his wife and daughters--the Pythagorean women who were also philosophers. But a few thousand years before them a Middle Eastern woman, En Hedu'Anna was a philosopher!
