Okin's Liberal Feminism as a Radical Political Theory
This chapter discusses the radical implications of Susan Okin's liberal political philosophy. Most of the world's societies subject women to unequal lives, whether through laws or conventions or a combination of the two. Rosenblum argues that this subjection of women is the touchstone of Okin's liberal humanism. Drawing out the similarities between Okin and John Stuart Mill, Rosenblum shows how his touchstone issues result in some radical theoretical and practical commitments.
