Politics, Philosophy and Economics 4 (2):233-248 (2005)
|Abstract||This article assesses the development of Rawlss thinking in response to a generation of feminist critique. Two principle criticisms are sustainable throughout his work: first, that the family, as a basic institution of society, must be subject to the principles of justice if its members are to be free and equal members of society; and, second, that without such social and political equality, justice as fairness is as meaningful to women as the unrealized promise of Forty acres and a mule was to the newly freed slaves. Key Words: Rawls political liberalism feminism religion public-private social contract.|
