The Philosopher Queens: December Update

Since The Philosopher Queens hit its crowdfunding target in October, you’re probably wondering what we’ve been up to. Needless to say, it’s been a very busy few months.

With the two of us beginning a PhD and a Masters Degree, we’ve been working as hard as we can on the book in any spare time we can find. We’ve now received over half of the chapters from our amazing authors, and most are ready for the manuscript submission at the end of January. This, of course, means lots more hard work for us over Christmas and New Year, but we can’t wait to get this book on your shelves.

We’re also giving lots of talks in schools over the next few months! On Monday, we’re speaking at a school in Reading, and in January we’re speaking at City of London School for Girls. We cannot wait to introduce these students to some of the women that are featured in the book. If you’re interested in us speaking at your school, university, group, or company please do take a look at our ‘Philosophy Talks’ pledge.

Our book is now over 112% funded, with more people discovering the project every week. We wanted to say thank you again to all of you for making this book a reality - we cannot wait to hand in our manuscript and start sending you sneak-peeks of chapters and illustrations.

Happy December!

Rebecca and Lisa
