Gender Distinctions and Gender Neutrality: Towards a Gender Egalitarian Ethics
The general mission of feminist philosophy is to correct whatever male biases may exist in the mainstream philosophical traditions . Thus western feminist philosophers investigate and challenge the ways in which western traditions have so long been participating in subordinating women or in rationalizing their subordination . By questioning the gender insensitivity of ethics and philosophy , feminism attempts to reveal various forms of subjugation of women operating through laws , institutions , customs , social theories , and cultural values. Feminism aims at coming up with a better design for society , based on a thorough review and rethinking of gendered positioning of human beings.
