(p.1) Introduction
Care, Gender, and Justice

Diemut Elisabet Bubeck

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter explains the coverage of this book, which is the inequality between men and women in care and justice. Its main concern is that many women still do most of the unpaid work performed in any home which goes towards meeting the needs of others. This is one of the first chapters to explore so-called women's work because many philosophers in social science and philosophy still do not take into account the problems or issues raised in their own subjects by a gendered reality. This work shares the preoccupation of Susan Moller Okin with sexual division of labour, particularly the gendered distribution of work in and between the public and private spheres.

Keywords:   inequality, women's work, social justice, philosophy, gendered distribution of work, Susan Moller Okin
