    Exclusion and Essentialism in Feminist Theory: The Problem of Mothering.Patrice Diquinzio - 1993 - Hypatia 8 (3):1 - 20.

The editors of this work believe that the time has come to assess the potential contribution of feminist ethical theory to the evaluation of specific social policies. If feminist ethics has indeed mobilized important paradigm shifts in normative analysis, then this should enable creative ways of reflection on social policy. Feminist ethics criticizes the gender blindness and biases in much traditional ethical theory, and develops new theories and concepts that are more (...)
