    Feminist Perspectives on Ethics is a unique guide to the development of feminist thought on ethics and moral agency. Each chapter offers a survey of feminist debates on key areas: the nature of feminist ethics; intimate relationships; professional ethics; politics; sexual politics; abortion and reproductive choices. Importantly, the author draws on the range of ideological viewpoints that exist to demonstrate the rich diversity of feminism and also attempts to break down dualistic, discordant or simplistic understandings of ethics.
