Women In Philosophy: Problems With The Discrimination Hypothesis

   This paper showed up briefly quite some time ago, then disappeared for revisions, and is now back.
   Like any good liberal, I used to unthinkingly accept the discrimination hypothesis as an explanation for the relatively small percentage of women in philosophy. After many years in the discipline, however, the hypothesis simply became less and less plausible to me.
   At any rate, I only got a chance to read this once, and quickly, the first time around, but it was definitely worth a read. Haven't read the new version, but I can't imagine it being not worth a read.
