Using this week’s readings and guidance, along with outside academic and professional research, discuss a particular issue in which philosophical ethics and political theory could be helped by taking into account a focus on gender. Consider issues like personal rights and freedoms, the gender wage gap, poverty and social welfare, and sexual rights through the prism of gender. Do our considerations of justice need to account for difference and different needs in terms of sex and gender representation?
(Consider some of the issues of focus from this past week’s massive rallies and marching around the country and the world, around the Women’s March on Washington for potential inspiration.)
