About this topic
Summary Feminist ethics covers a range of gender-specific social justice and moral questions.  This sub-discipline is concerned with the values and virtues of both the individual and the community via feminist and woman-centered approaches and responses to mainstream ethics and moral theory, especially liberalism and communitarianism.  More specifically, feminist ethics spans traditional ethics and political philosophy, the public and private domains, and individual vs. community analyses to demonstrate the extent and importance of private values in the public sphere and vice versa.  Additionally, this field aims to highlight deficiencies in philosophies (potentially, conceivably, explicitly) connected to matters of justice due to theoretical and practical gender-based exclusion.  One core goal of this sub-discipline is to broaden philosophical inclusiveness beyond gender concerns by paying attention to and emphasizing issues related to privilege, power, and intersectionality. 
Key works There are a number of anthologies that best represent the contemporary research in Feminist Ethics.  See: Calhoun 2003 (Setting the Moral Compass: Essays by Women Philosophers), Desautels et al 2001 (Feminists Doing Ethics), Meyers 1997 (Feminists Rethink the Self), Calhoun 2006 (Moral Psychology: Feminist Ethics and Social Theory), and Bushnell et al 1995 (Nagging Questions).  Divergent canonical texts include Walker 2007, Anderson 1999, Held 2005, Lugones 1987, and Narayan 1995.
Introductions Lindemann 2005 (An Invitation to Feminist Ethics); Card 1999 (Feminist Ethics and Politics); Whisnant & DesAutels 2007 (Global Feminist Ethics).

    Greater numbers of women are entering workplaces in Saudi Arabia and other Middle Eastern countries. Structural features of patriarchy are changing in Middle Eastern societies and workplaces, but women’s experiences of gendered segregation, under-representation and exclusion raise questions around the feminist politics and ethics mobilized to respond to them. Building on and extending emerging research on feminism, gender, resistance, feminist ethics and the Middle East, we use data from an interview study with 58 Saudi Arabian women to explore their attitudes (...)

    How should we react to the development of sexbot technology? Taking their cue from anti-porn feminism, several academic critics lament the development of sexbot technology, arguing that it objectifies and subordinates women, is likely to promote misogynistic attitudes toward sex, and may need to be banned or restricted. In this chapter I argue for an alternative response. Taking my cue from the sex positive ‘feminist porn’ movement, I argue that the best response to the development of ‘bad’ sexbots is to (...)

    In many cultures arrogance is regarded as a serious vice and a cause of numerous social ills. Although its badness is typically thought to lie in its harmful consequences for other persons and things, I draw on Kant to argue that what makes it a vice is first and foremost the failure to respect oneself. But arrogance is not only a problem inside individuals. Drawing on feminist insights I argue that it is a systemic problem constructed in and reinforcing unjust (...)

    L’affaire Weinstein et le mouvement #MeToo ont mis la question des violences sexuelles au premier plan. Depuis, le consentement renvoie naturellement au consentement sexuel et amoureux, envisagé comme un sésame de l’égalité entre femmes et hommes. Pourtant, il est bien difficile à définir, et soulève trois problèmes. Le problème juridique, bien connu de celles et ceux qui suivent l’actualité, peut être résumé ainsi: que faire pour que les cas de viol, d’agression et de harcèlement sexuels soient efficacement punis ?

    Helen Frowe (2014) depicts the following fictional case: Fran is being raped by Eric and can’t stop him with violent resistance. Nevertheless, she resists and breaks Eric’s wrist. The infliction of defensive harm on Eric is intuitively permissible, yet it runs counter to the dominant view that defensive harms must stand a reasonable chance of success. Call this the Success Condition (SC). To solve this problem, Daniel Statman (2008) contends that even if Victim’s defensive harms fail to prevent her rape, (...)

  34. Beyond Adaptive Preferences: Rethinking Women's Complicity in Their Own Subordination.Charlotte Knowles - forthcoming - European Journal of Philosophy.
    An important question confronting feminist philosophers is why women are sometimes complicit in their own subordination. The dominant view holds that complicity is best understood in terms of adaptive preferences. This view assumes that agents will naturally gravitate away from subordination and towards flourishing, as long as they do not have things imposed on them that disrupt this trajectory. However, there is reason to believe that ‘impositions’ do not explain all of the ways in which complicity can arise. This paper (...)

I have selected four hindi dalit poems because they represent dalit women’s voice and they capture their agonies, pains and the dominant caste males vs females’ fear, the so called ̔fear of the other̕. It becomes inscribed into dalit women’s minds, as evidenced by many contemporary poems, so much so that women can be said (...)
