Editorial Reviews


"Powerful... Autonomy, Gender, Politics makes a major contribution to the philosophical literature on autonomy and gender. Whether or not one is ultimately persuaded by her content-neutral account of autonomy, Friedmans discussion of the philosophical and social policy issues raised by a relational approach to autonomy is illuminating, challenging and insightful."--Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Well-written and from a point of view that is divergent from most other feminist philosophers. Rather than condemning individualism as many feminist scholars do, Friedman sees a role for it, as well as the concept of negative rights. She offers a hard-hitting analysis of Rawls, calling his idea of an allegedly consenting citizenry into question. Pointing out that the idea of everyone in a liberal society agreeing to be governed is a "hopeless nonstarter," she offers no solutions but raises important questions.
