Feminism

Hi, my name is Eric and I'm researching a paper entitled 'The Contribution of Feminist Ethics'. Is there such a discipline? Does it perhaps go by another name? The main thrust of my paper will be, the need to transform our society and the contribution that a 'feminist ethic' can help to achieve that goal. I would appreciate even a personal reflection on this. Thanks, Eric

Thanks for your note to Feminist.com and, yes, there is such a thing as a feminist ethic--and there are a few books with this title. In fact, I think that one book is entitled Is There a Feminist Ethic? Check out your library or the Feminist.com Bookstore for these books.

You might want to track down a few professors on this topic--like bell hooks, who teaches at CUNY (City University of New York) and Adrienne Ash who teaches in the Biology and Ethics department at Wellesley College.

Personally, I think that feminist ethics is a redundant term--since to me feminism is about making moral/ethical decisions based on the fact that all people are equal. I hope these sources are helpful.
