The paper deals with the category of gender as an analytical tool used in feminist critical reflection of the philosophical canon. It outlines the main streams of this criticism elucidating the various ways via which women have been excluded from the philosophical domain. One particular kind of this 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 authoress 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 effectively corrected.
