Sex and Social Justice

Martha C. Nussbaum

Growing out of Nussbaum's years of work with an international development agency connected with the United Nations, and informed by her study of Aristotle and the Stoics and the modern liberal thinkers Kant and Mill, this collection charts a feminism that is deeply concerned with the urgent needs of women who live in hunger and illiteracy, or under unequal legal systems. Sex and Social Justice will interest a wide readership because of the public importance of the topics Nussbaum addresses and the generous insight she shows in dealing with these issues. These essays offer incisive reflections by one of our most important living philosophers.
