After reading Lindemann’s “What is Feminist Ethics” (pp. 143-154) and the assigned sections of “Feminist Environmental Philosophy,” as well as the other material provided in this unit like the video of Dr. Vandana Shiva, write a 3-4 page essa.y in which you do all of the following:
Select your preferred case from the Regional Ethics Bowl Cases 2022, or contact your instructor to get approval for another case that interests you (please provide a news or journal article with details of the case).
In particular, make sure you identify at least one element of the feminist ethics approach to this case (e.g. critique of capitalism and how it devalues women/other marginalized communities).
Make sure to define any key terms and concepts. Assume that the reader is unfamiliar with the readings. Engage with the readings directly through paraphrasing and in-text citations.
Given the purposes of this assignment, it is important that you provide clear definitions of key terms, explain concepts and theories in detail and with examples when helpful, and demonstrate your understanding by providing these explanations in your own words whenever possible (instead of quoting). My recommendation is to demonstrate your understanding of the reading through selective quoting (in other words, keep quoting to a minimum) and when quoting, be sure to explain what the quote means and how it connects to the rest of the discussion.
