    Gendered Narratives: Stories and Silences in Transitional Justice.Elisabeth Porter - 2016 - Human Rights Review 17 (1):35-50.

Reasons for silences are varied. This article affirms the importance of telling and listening to stories and notes the significance of silences within transitional justice’s narratives.

    Can Politics Practice Compassion?Elisabeth Porter - 2001 - Hypatia 21 (4):97-123.

    Abortion Ethics: Rights and Responsibilities.Elisabeth Porter - 1994 - Hypatia 9 (3):66 - 87.
    Abortion considerations require deep reflection on law, convention, social mores, religious norms, family contexts, emotions, and relationships. I have three arguments.

Third, abortion ethics involves a dialectical interplay between rights and responsibilities, and between social, cultural, and particular contexts, and is best understood in terms of moral praxis.
