Hypatia editor Alison Wylie gave the Presidential Address at the 2012 Pacific Division meeting of the American Philosophical Association in April. Her topic was feminist standpoint theory: why it matters that we are situated knowers and how best to understand the critical advantages that arise from socially marginal standpoints.
In honor of Hypatia’s 25th anniversary, we are pleased to offer free access to the following special issues and journal extras.
- 25th Anniversary Special Issue

Hypatia is a forum for cutting edge work in feminist philosophy. Since its inception in the mid-1980s as an independent journal, Hypatia has been both a catalyst for broadening and refining feminist philosophy, and an invaluable resource for those who teach in this area. Feminist philosophy arises out of diverse traditions and methods within philosophy, and is also richly interdisciplinary in orientation; we are committed to publishing articles that are broadly accessible. Hypatia serves as a resource for the wider women’s studies community, for philosophers generally, and for all those interested in philosophical issues raised by feminism.
