The Philosopher Queens (2020) is a book about women philosophers by women philosophers. The book covers 20 women philosophers, detailing their lives and work. 

Throughout the development of the project I have been lucky enough to engage with philosophers across the world on the topic on minorities in philosophy. I have also spoken at secondary schools and universities, encouraging young women to study philosophy and discussing barriers that they may face.
