This Introduction starts by outlining the life and work of Susan Moller Okin and talks about her feminist perspective, which challenged the complacency of political philosophers towards questions about gender and family. The Introduction then discusses the extent to which Okin's work and thoughts contributed towards her aim of an end of gender inequality. She aimed for a more just society, the Introduction states. The Introduction goes on to discuss Okin's work in relation to the family and politcal theory and multiculturalism. The role of women in economic development is also mentioned. Finally the Introduction summarizes the contents of the chapters that follow.

Keywords:   gender and family, gender inequality, political theory, multiculturalism, economic development
