The return of feminist liberalism by Ruth Abbey ( Book )
13 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this book Ruth Abbey examines the positions of three contemporary feminists - Martha Nussbaum, Susan Moller Okin, and Jean Hampton - who, notwithstanding decades of feminist critique, are unwilling to give up on liberalism. Abbey examines why, and in what ways, each of these theorists believes that liberalism offers the normative and political resources for the improvement of women's lives. Going beyond their shared allegiance to liberalism, Abbey explains and evaluates their theoretical differences, and in so doing, goes to the heart of recent debates in feminist and political theory
