The present volume collects papers on ten female thinkers who directly or indirectly contributed to the development of analytic philosophy but who did not always receive the attention they deserve. In this introduction, we briefly recall the standard account of analytic philosophy as we know it from the textbooks, provide an overview of the research that has been done on the role of women in analytic philosophy in the past few years, and offer a quantitative analysis of 3,274 publications in the major analytic journals between 1896 and 1960. We conclude our introduction with summaries of the ten chapters in this volume.
