The Society for the Study of Women in Phenomenology is a learned society focused on researching the work of women in phenomenology and phenomenological philosophy. SSWPH have three objectives.

Second, to create a dialogue between those working in the phenomenological tradition and other schools of thought and research methods to address questions of philosophical import. Third, to cultivate new phenomenological, philosophical work that draws inspiration from and/or extends the ideas of the thinkers of the Society’s focus. SSWPH carry out thier mandate through a series of conferences, workshops, debates, translation projects, and scholarly publications.
The Society is open to all scholars interested in the work of women in phenomenology or phenomenological philosophy.
