Anti-Women Bias in PEA Soup Awards?

PEA Soup announced its first annual PEA Soup Awards recently. Scanning the list of winners, I noticed that only two of the eighteen winners were women. This raises an important question: Are there really so few women doing quality ethics and political philosophy, or are the editors and readers of PEA Soup blinded by implicit bias? This doesn’t even come close to matching the rate of women in philosophy. Justin W., what do you think?

Walter is a philosophy graduate student in New Hampshire. He sometimes wishes he was a lawyer, and other times wishes he was a basketball coach. Some of his favorite childhood memories involve traveling with his immediate family, grandparents, and cousins’ family in big gas-guzzling vans towing campers. He sees philosophy as a tool for getting at Truth, and thinks too many contemporary philosophers see it as a tool for advancing their ideological preferences.
