"Nagging" Questions: Feminist Ethics in Everyday Lifeby Dana E. Bushnell (Editor), Anita L. Allen (Contribution by), Sandra Lee Bartky (Contribution by), John Christman (Contribution by), Judith Wagner DeCew (Contribution by)
In this anthology of new and classic articles, fifteen noted feminist philosophers explore contemporary ethical issues that uniquely affect the lives of women. These issues in applied ethics include autonomy, responsibility, sexual harassment, women in the military, new technologies for reproduction, surrogate motherhood, pornography, abortion, nonfeminist women and others. Whether generated by old social standards or intensified by recent technology, these dilemmas all pose persistent, "nagging," questions that cry out for answers. Unlike other anthologies in feminist ethics, this book encourages critical thinking about concrete, contemporary social and moral issues. Each engaging, clearly written article is followed by discussion questions, making the book useful for students of women's studies, philosophy, sociology, and political science.
