Mary Ellen Waithe is a Professor of Philosophy and Interim Director of Women's Studies at Cleveland State University. She is also the editor (and chief author) of the magnificent four-volume series, "A History of Women Philosophers."

Ms. Waithe describes the origin of this project in the "Introduction to the Series" found in Volume 1: When as a graduate student at the City University of New York, "I came upon a reference to a work by Aegidius Menagius, Historia Mullierum Philosopharum, published in 1690 and 1692. I had never heard of any women philosophers prior to the 20th century with the exceptions of Queen Christina of Sweden, known as Descartes' student, and Hildegard von Bingen, who lived in the 12th century." After she obtained a copy of this book (see Gilles Menage, "History of Women Philosophers"; there's no listing on Amazon), she discovered that "many of the women he listed as philosophers were astronomers, astrologers, gynecologists, or simply relatives of male philosophers. Nevertheless, the list of women alleged to have been philosophers was impressive." She was also strongly influenced by Judy Chicago's "Dinner Party" art exhibit, and the many women described therein as "philosophers." She says, "At my husband's suggestion, I took steps to ... create a team of experts to collaborate with me in this endeavor. I placed a notice in the SWIP (Society for Women in Philosophy) Newsletter and received a half-dozen responses from philosophers..." and the project began.
