This paper will be a critical analysis of the concept of justice or the lack of justice from a feminist perspective. Feminist can translate loosely as a women-centered perspective, that is, seeing the world from a female perspective in a male-dominated society. Both men and women can write from a feminist perspective! You can expand your discussion to include race, class, and sexual preference in your paper as long as you relate it to the assigned readings.
Choose TWO articles from the required readings assigned below and, using the assigned article you choose below, write a detailed discussion about what justice from a feminist perspective means to you and also how it is understood by other scholars from a feminist perspective, based on your outside research sources. Be sure to do a focused critical analysis of how justice can be understood in the context of the assigned article you choose to write about.
Your paper must be grounded by a clear thesis statement and it MUST BE A DETAILED DISCUSSION OF THE ASSIGNED READINGS BELOW. Do NOT write a paper that does NOT focus on the assigned readings from this class.
