Review

Ms. Penaluna tacks between rage and humour, biography and theory. Her writing is sharp and rousing. Her message is consoling and motivating. If this is what it means to think like a woman, sign me up - Wall Street Journal

Self-awareness is the book's governing theme, and it is conveyed with empathy and intelligence. Let there be more such books. -- Stuart Kelly - Scotland on Sunday

sharp-eyed reappraisal of four brilliant women in history - and a provocative challenge to the philosophy bros -- Helen Lewis, author of DIFFICULT WOMEN

In a world in which philosophy is not only sexist in underestimating women's actual and potential contributions, but actively misogynistic in pushing women out of the field, we need this bookHow to Think Like a Woman is at once a deeply personal and philosophically riveting meditation on four brilliant and inspiring female philosophers that I learned so much from. A must-read for anyone who cares about what happens to women, young and old, in this needlessly and harmfully male-dominated profession. -- Kate Manne, author of ENTITLED: How Male Privilege Hurts Women

fascinating and illuminating work of non-fiction by a writer of real style and critical intelligence. Regan Penaluna has created an elegant synthesis of intellectual history, memoir and feminist polemic that deserves to be widely read as a corrective to centuries of misogyny and erasure in philosophy. -- Mark O’Connell, author of TO BE A MACHINE

A feminist rallying cry informed by centuries of thought on the 'woman question', this elegantly written and intellectually rigorous memoir is a gift to women in male-dominated fields - and to everyone living a life of the mind while also trying to be a decent human being. -- Ada Calhoun, author of ALSO A POET

Book Description

A timely critique investigating how four women philosophers persevered in a field that often suppressed and disregarded the insights of female thinkers.
