Feminist Inquiry and the Transformation of the 'Public' Sphere in Virginia Held's "Feminist Morality" [Book Review]

Hypatia 11 (1):155 - 167 (1996)
Virginia Held's Feminist Morality defends the idea that it is possible to transform the "public" sphere by remaking it on the model of existing "private" relationships such as families. This paper challenges Held's optimism. It is argued that feminist moral inquiry can aid in transforming the public sphere only by showing just how much the allegedly "private" realms of families and personal relationships are shaped-and often misshapen-by public demands and concerns
