Welcome Letter from the Organizing Committee
Founded in 1976, the International Association of Women Philosophers (IAPh) is anorganization committed to promoting  discussion, interaction, and cooperation among women in philosophy worldwide. The IAPh’s XVIIth symposium will be held immediately preceding the World Congress of Philosophy in Beijing, and proposes to celebrate women’s diverse historical and contemporary contributions to philosophy, and to highlight the work of female philosophers in all branches of philosophical and feminist inquiries.The symposium will reflect globalization and the history of women’s engagement with philosophy and feminism in Asia, Europe, the Americas, Australasia, Africa, and elsewhere, during the past forty-two years, and back to the earliest periods. This year's theme, ‘Women and Philosophy in the Era of Globalization’ is intended to capture the broad scope of contemporary research on historical women philosophers, on feminist ethics, aesthetics, and politics, and on questions of feminist epistemology in multiple cultures. We welcome your participation and wish all would be inspired during this unique gathering in Beijing!
