Susan Okin on Justice and Gender*

Toward a Humanist Justice

This chapter discusses three central preoccupations in Okin's writing: the relationship between feminism and traditional political theory, the relationship between the family and women's position in society, and the public/private distinction. Okin thought that much traditional political theory was rendered implausible once women were taken into account; she believed that principles of justice must be applied to the family itself; and she accepted—to some extent—a public/private distinction. This chapter critically explores each of these ideas.

Keywords:   feminist method, public/private distinction, justice in the family
