The workshop aims to focus on and critically discuss female logicians such 
as Christine Ladd-Franklin, Alice Ambrose, Margaret Masterman, Ruth Barcan 
Marcus, and Val Plumwood. They have played an extraordinary role in the 
history and philosophy of logic, advocating at the same time for gender 
equality in order to make logic more open, diverse and effective. 
Parallels will be drawn with well-known figures of logic (e.g. Peirce, 
Frege, Russell and Wittgenstein) and a critical look will be taken at the 
historiography of logic, which still resonates today. Speakers: Jasmin 
Özel, Claudia Anger, John David Loner, Siobhan Chapman, Frederique 
Janssen-Lauret, Elena Ficara. The event will end with a roundtable 
discussion. Invited guests: Francine F. Abeles (Kean University, NJ, USA), 
Carolin Antos-Kuby (University of Konstanz, Germany), Ursula Martin 
(University of Edinburgh and Wadham College Oxford, UK)
