In other words, women are still excluded, as authors and agents, from identifying what it is to be human and what therefore violates the dignity and integrity of humans. Recognition, Responsibility and Rights is written in response to that failure. This collection of 14 papers by prominent feminist thinkers advances the positive feminist project of remapping the moral by developing theory that acknowledges the diversity of women. Social Theory (FEAST), an innovative response to the persistence of the politics/ethics divide within moral and feminist moral theory. FEAST advances the goal of a feminist ethico-politics by creating an organization and a body of work in ethics. The collection meets that goal by analyzing gender with respect to three key ethical concepts - recognition, responsibility and rights.
