Courses: Social and Political Theory-Perspectives on Consent (PHILB349001)
Class Number: 1801
I or III
Feminists have criticized many different social roles as being
sexist. For example, many feminists argue that the traditional
division of domestic labour is sexist because the social roles it
assigns to women leaves them economically disadvantaged and unfairly
dependent on their husbands. People sometimes respond to these sorts
of criticisms by claiming that because these roles are freely chosen
the decision to comply with them ought not to be criticized. The focus
of this course will be an examination of this line of response.
Prerequisite: One course in Philosophy or the consent of the
