Feminist Ethics - Virginia Tech
In Starting at Home: Caring and Social Policy (2002), Noddings extendsthe principles of her relationally-based ethic of care to the largersocial domain and into the arena of public policy. In response tothose who have criticized feminine ethics of care as a "fine domestictheory" that is largely irrelevant when addressing the moralcomplexities of wider social issues and policies, Noddings insiststhat the possibility to develop a robust sense of social justice isconditioned on the lessons learned in the domestic arena. On her view,if we are to develop truly effective social policies about matterssuch as homelessness, mental illness, and education, we have much tolearn by "starting at home" where the origins of care have theirroots.
