    with a list of women philosophers, who no one can discount are/were actual philosophers. My point was that the reason that these women's contributions are not seen as being on par with male philosophers of old is that philosophy, in general, has not held the same universal respect and influence as it did when women were excluded from philosophy. Ergo, Murray's statement that there are no important women philosophers is based on historical bias. They are not seen as important simply because from the time they entered philosophy, philosophy itself is not seen as being important.
