Third Keynote: Mary Midgley

We are so excited to confirm that Mary Midgley will join us at our International Women’s Day conference. Midgley was part of an extraordinary group of women at Oxford University in the 1930s. The prominence of Midgley, Philippa Foot, Iris Murdoch, Elizabeth Anscombe, and Mary Warnock have led to the 1930s-50s being called the ‘Golden Age of Female Philosophy’. She has written extensively on ethics, human nature, feminism, and scientism.
