A Feminist Ethic of RISK (Other Feminist Voices)

A Feminist Ethic of Risk proposes a new model for ethics and new life orientation for social justice. It directly addresses American and European “middle-class despair” over issues and challenges seemingly too large to tackle, such as environmental destruction or racism. Her ethic uproots classical assumptions and opens up the possibility of a strong religious vision or “theology of resistance and hope.” This new edition includes a new chapter that situates the feminist ethic of risk in relation to other styles and options in religious ethics today.
