Alison Bailey is a Professor of Philosophy and Director of the Women’s and Gender Studies Program at Illinois State University.
My scholarship engages broadly with questions in feminist ethics, with an applied focus on social justice issues related to race and gender privilege, intersectionality, reproductive justice, and epistemologies of ignorance. In particular I’m interested in understanding how race and gender privilege confine both our theoretical understandings of moral concepts, and their application to contemporary social issues.
