Noting that Okin placed the family at the center of concerns about justice, this chapter explores the relationship between the family and the achievement of equality of opportunity. The chapter contrasts several conceptions of equality of opportunity and explores each conception's ability to accommodate the family. It also discusses the possibility of reconciliation between the family and equality of opportunity in the light of the social science literature on intergenerational transmission of inequality.

Keywords:   equality of opportunity, family, transmission of inequality, justice and the family
