52 editions published between 1979 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 1,870 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this pathbreaking study of the works of Plato, Aristotle, Rousseau, and Mill, Susan Moller Okin turns to the tradition of political philosophy that pervades Western culture and its institutions to understand why the gap between formal and real gender equality persists.

The subjection of women by John Stuart Mill( Book )

9 editions published between 1988 and 2011 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The object of this essay is to explain as clearly as I am able, the grounds of an opinion which I have held from the very earliest period when I had formed any opinions at all on social or political matters, and which, instead of being weakened or modified, has been constantly growing stronger by the progress of reflection and the experience of life: That the principle which regulates the existing social relations between the two sexes- the legal subordination of one sex to the other- is wrong in itself, and now one of the chief hindrances to human improvement ; and that is ought to be replaced by a principle of perfect equality, admitting no power or privilege on the one side, nor disability on the other."--Page 1

Diritti delle donne e multiculturalismo by Susan Moller Okin( Book )

La femminista radicale Susan Moller Okin discute assieme a quindici interlocutori, del calibro di Martha Nussbaum e Saskia Sassen, su temi legati al multiculturalismo e al femminismo. È giusto obbligare le altre culture a conformarsi ai nostri standard di uguaglianza sessuale? O bisogna rispettare le tradizioni culturali e le credenze religiose degli altri gruppi etnici? I saggi che compongono il volume, tutti molto incisivi e di facile lettura, affrontano la questione da punti di vista eterogenei, obbligandoci a mettere da parte i nostri pregiudizi e a considerare anche le ragioni degli altri.
