Gender reflection: Reconciling feminism and equality

Philosophy and Social Criticism 24 (5):37-51 (1998)
Recent feminist debates reveal a concern about the notion that equality is no longer a valuable ideal for feminist thinkers. Suspicious that equality represents sameness, feminists have leaned toward rejecting the ideal of equality and moved toward the recognition of differences among women as the guide of political judgement. In this article, equality is approached from a feminist perspective that does not conclude that identical sameness is the only reading of equality. Borrowing Rawls' notion of the moral person, I argue that gender reflection should be considered part of an expanded view of equality
