Society for Phenomenology and Existential Philosophy

Status of Women

The Committee on the Status of Women was established in 1984 for the purpose of increasing the participation of women in SPEP. To that end, it requests information on the participation of women in the Society, creates a program session, and (with financial sponsorship from a university press) has, in the past, hosted a reception at conferences of the society.
