The paper deals with the category of gender as an analytical tool used in the feminist critical reflection of the philosophical canon. It outlines the main streams of this criticism elucidating various ways via which women have been excluded from the philosophical domain. One particular kind this of exclusion is illustrated by the case of Harriet Taylor Mill, whose liberal philosophical ideas on women’s rights have been marginalised for a long time. The author argues for the importance of the feminist re-reading the philosophical canon, by the help of which the one-sidedness of the established explanations could be effeclively corrected.
