(p.129) 7 On the Tension between Sex Equality and Religious Freedom*
Toward a Humanist Justice

Cass Sunstein

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the challenge that religious liberty poses to gender equality, a challenge that was central to Okin's rejection of a blanket endorsement for multiculturalism. This chapter argues that conflicts between sex equality and religious institutions are pervasive and create severe tensions in a liberal social order. The chapter attempts to show that neither liberal ideals nor the Constitution should be taken to absolutely forbid government from banning sex discrimination by religious institutions.

Keywords:   religious freedom, gender discrimination, equality of opportunity
