3 The Department of Philosophy at the University of Toronto comprises the philosophers on the university's St. George and Erindale campuses. The philosophers on the Scarborough campus are members of the Division of Humanities at Scarborough College, and are not included in these figures. For the record, in 1989 the Scarborough permanent philosophy complement consisted of six full-time faculty, none of them women.
4 During the same period, two tenure-stream positions were filled at Scarborough College, both by women.
5 Technically, we overachieved somewhat. One appointment, filled by a man, was shared on a 50/50 basis with the Faculty of Law; four of 5.5 appointments therefore went to women.
6 The Canadian Philosophical Association's Committee to Study Hiring Policies Affecting Women found that, as of 1990–1991, 13% of all tenure-stream positions in Canadian philosophy departments were held by women.
