Polygamy forced marriage female genital mutilation punishing women for being raped differential access for men and women to health care and education unequal rights of ownership assembly and political participation unequal vulnerability to violence These practices and conditions are standard in some parts of the world Do demands for multiculturalism and certain minority group rights in particular make them more likely to continue and to spread to liberal democracies Are there fundamental conflicts between our commitment to gender equity and our increasing desire to respect the customs of minority cultures or religions In this book the eminent feminist Susan Moller Okin and fifteen of the world s leading thinkers about feminism and multiculturalism explore these unsettling questions in a provocative passionate and illuminating debate .
Okin opens by arguing that some group rights can in fact endanger women She points for example to the French government s giving thousands of male immigrants special permission to bring multiple wives into the country despite French laws against polygamy and the wives own bitter opposition to the practice Okin argues that if we agree that women should not be disadvantaged because of their sex we should not accept group rights that permit oppressive practices on the grounds that they are fundamental to minority cultures whose existence may otherwise be threatened .
In reply some respondents reject Okin s position outright contending that her views are rooted in a moral universalism that is blind to cultural difference Others quarrel with Okin s focus on gender or argue that we should be careful about which group rights we permit but not reject the category of group rights altogether Okin concludes with a rebuttal clarifying adjusting and extending her original position These incisive and accessible essays expanded from their original publication in i Boston Review i and including four new contributions are indispensable reading for anyone interested in one of the most contentious social and political issues today .
