Should Stoics be feminists?
The ancient Stoics had very progressive ideas about women. Zeno of Citium and Seneca explicitly say that women have the same mental faculties as men, and they therefore should be taught philosophy. But were the early Stoics feminist in the modern sense of the word? More importantly, should modern Stoics be feminists?

What we're about

The School is inspired (with a bit of immodesty) to the ancient Greco-Roman schools of philosophy. Plato, Aristotle, Epicurus, Epictetus and many others simply gave lectures about their favorite topics and engaged in Socratic discussions with people interested in what they had to say. In our case, we will examine the theory and practice of Stoicism as a modern applied philosophy that aids us in navigating a world in some ways just as confusing and uncertain as that of ancient Athens and Rome.
