Moral Perspectives on Feminism (3 vols.)
Georgetown University Press 1999–2011
Historically, feminist ethics have often been in opposition with other significant strands of ethical thought—especially in religion. Moral Perspectives on Feminism (3 vols.) places feminist arguments in dialogue with issues they frequently conflict with, using reasoning to illuminate the truths from either side. In Feminist Ethics and Natural Law, Cristina L. H. Traina seeks to reconcile Roman Catholic natural law and Anglo-American feminist ethics by highlighting the ways their ideals align. Creative Conformity follows the lives of 11 U. S. Catholic and Iranian Shi’i women to explore the ways they impact the ethical identities of their communities and the diversity of moral thought and action produced by religion. Aquinas, Feminism, and the Common Good engages with Thomas Aquinas’s notion of the common good to address contemporary issues, particularly within U. S. women’s health care, revealing that religious traditions once thought of as oppressive can rectify social injustice. Together, these three works provide valuable insight into the ways feminism and religious traditions interact and benefit each other.
