Philosopher Suki Finn (Women of Ideas) sits down with three women challenging the status quo in the typically male-dominated world of philosophy: Amia Srinivasan (The Right To Sex), Lisa Whiting (The Philosopher Queens) and Kate Kirkpatrick (Becoming Beauvoir). With increased scrutiny of the female experience following the rise of the #MeToo movement, who should we be looking at to theorise feminism in today’s climate? Which female philosophers from the past can we take inspiration from and are their theories still useful to us today?
