The notion of citizenship is complex; it can be at once an identity; a set of rights, privileges, and responsibilities; an elevated and exclusionary status, a relationship between individual and state, and more. In recent decades citizenship has attracted interdisciplinary attention, particularly with the transnational growth of Western capitalism. Yet citizenship's relationship to gender has gone relatively unexplored--despite that throughout much of human history, women have been and continue to be denied citizenship, sometimes at even the lowest rank. This highly interdisciplinary volume explores the political and cultural dimensions of citizenship and their relevance to women and gender. Containing essays by a well-known group of scholars, including Iris Marion Young, Alison Jaggar, Martha Nussbaum, and Sandra Bartky, this book examines the conceptual issues and strategies at play in the feminist quest to give women full citizenship status. The contributors take a fresh look at the issues, going beyond conventional critiques, and examine problems in the political and social arrangements, practices, and conditions that diminish women's citizenship in various parts of the world, including both Western and undeveloped nations.

A. Modest Proposal, Care is a Fundamental Aspect of Human Life. Care Consists of ''Everything We Do to Continue, Repair, and Maintain Ourselves so That We Can Live in the World as Well as Possible''(Fisher and Tronto 1990, 41). Most of Us Think About Care in the Intimate Relationships of Our Lives: Care for Ourselves and Our Families and Friends. In its Broadest Meanings, Care is Complex and Multidimensional: It Refers Both to the Dispositional Qualities We Need to Care for Ourselves and Others, Such as Being. [REVIEW]
