Daring to Be Good Reviews

"Because of the many topics covered and the interdisciplinary emphasis of the collection, this book will serve as a useful addition to courses in feminist philosophy and politics... wonderful... insightful..." -- Marcia Homiak, Signs
"...a fine collection of essays..." -- Ethics
"With compelling analyses and examples, the essays in this collection create ethico-political connections that interrogate philosophy's traditional divisions between ethics and politics. They address matters as diverse as the `disciplined' feminine body, identity politics and `traitorous identities,' aboriginal education, abortion, reproductive technologies, and prostitution. Engaging provocatively with the `justified moral suspicion of the desire to be good (girls!),' the authors contest entrenched conceptions of knowledge, subjectivity, psychology, and agency to produce a daring agenda for a situated feminist ethico-politics that can take experiential multiplicity seriously, while generating significant transformations in public policy. This book will be a fine resource for teachers and students of feminist ethics, politics, and epistemology, and for scholars and activists committed to making a better world." -- Lorraine Code, York University
"These essays help us envision how feminist ethics can become politically effective in new ways and in neglected areas, integrating insights on race and class with those on gender, and paying attention to the epistemology involved. This is important work." -- Virginia Held, CUNY Graduate School & Hunter College
