Why is the world of ideas dominated by male thinkers? Is it because women are discouraged from intellectual life – or is it because women tend to choose other careers?
If we go even deeper: why do women (and men) make the choices they do? Is it because they are influenced by overwhelming societal pressures – or are they acting freely?
These are the questions I’ve asked Dr. Michelle Boulous-Walker, who teaches at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia.
