Pluralism, Justice, and Equality

Susan Moller Okin

Oxford University Press

Susan Moller Okin, drawing on a wide range of cross‐national data on politics and gender, examines the representation of women in political life in contemporary liberal democracies. She argues that Walzer's notion of complex equality can be used as a tool for feminist criticism. She suggests that women's representation can be increased if the sphere of family does not dominate other spheres of social life for women.

Keywords:   complex equality, cross‐national data, family, feminism, gender, liberal democracy, politics, representation, social life, women
