On her book On Civic Friendship: Including Women in the State

Cover Interview of December 07, 2009

Editor’s note

Originally, this interview ran on the Rorotoko cover page under the headline

“Exposing the biased and gendered foundations of the modern political state.”



We highlighted two quotes.


On the first page:

“Women, throughout history and across the globe, have continued to perform the vast majority of reproductive labor and praxis in society—that form of ethical activity that reproduces not merely biological beings but educated, reasoning, and mature persons.”



On the second:

“I argue for an economy that recognizes not just productive labor for exchange, but equally ethical reproductive praxis as well.”
