Women in Western Political Thought by Susan Moller Okin
Book DescriptionWhy hasn't real equality between the sexes resulted from the formal enfranchisement of women? Susan Moller Okin finds an answer to this question in the existing tradition of political theory, which requires the subordination of women. An exploration of the "functionalist" view of women in Plato, Aristotle, Rousseau and John Stuart Mill, this work, originally published in 1979, is a feminist analysis of the major political philosophy of Western culture. Reissued here with a new afterword, it exposes deep-rooted assumptions about sex roles, family and society that continue to shape our lives.

Books By Author Susan Moller Okin
Is Multiculturalism Bad for Women?, Paperback (August 1999)
Do demands for multiculturalism make them more likely to continue and to spread to liberal democracies? Are there fundamental conflicts between our commitment to gender equity and our increasing desire to respect the customs of minority cultures or religions? This book explores these unsettling questions.
Justice, Gender, and the Family, Paperback (January 1991)
In the first feminist critique of modern political theory, Okin shows how the failure to apply theories of justice to the family not only undermines our most cherished democratic values but has led to a major crisis over gender-related issues.
