Toward a Humanist Justice: The Political Philosophy of Susan Moller Okin

Debra Satz and Rob Reich


The late Susan Moller Okin was a leading political theorist whose scholarship integrated political philosophy and issues of gender, the family, and culture. This volume stems from a conference on Okin's work and contains chapters by some of the top feminist and political philosophers working today. They are organized around a set of themes central to Okin's work, namely liberal theory, gender and the family, feminist and cultural differences, and global justice. Their aim is not to celebrate Okin's work but to constructively engage with it and further its goals.

Keywords: feminism, political philosophy, justice and the family, multiculturalism, gender equality, liberalism
