Pledges like this one are increasingly common in any field where participants want to take positive action to promote gender fairness. An example is the online petition set up by Virginia Valian and Dan Sperber, in which “signatories commit to accepting talk invitations only from conferences that have made good-faith efforts to include women” (For Gender Equity Team 2012). As with Valian and Sperber’s pledge, we place emphasis on good-faith efforts. A good-faith effort does not have to mean 50-50 representation of men and women. A good-faith effort by editors, publishers and event organisers might include taking the following actions (adapted from Martin 2014, Gender Equity Team 2012, Feminist Philosophers 2011.):
Editors, publishers and organisers should consciously set themselves the task of including roughly as many women as men in their anthology, edited collection, conference or festival. Because of past neglect, editors and organisers may need to work a little harder to come up with female names for their project. Realising this, they should make an extra effort to ask around and to search for female names in the available literature.
