Week 5 Help Please Feminist Transformations Of Ethical Theory

350 Words MINIMUM

Using Virginia Held’s article “Feminist Transformations of Ethical Theory” as a foundation (found in the textbook), explain three things that you did not know about feminist thought that you found interesting and/or informative.  What were those things?  Why are they interesting or informative?  How do they relate to the view that you now hold of ethics and how one can live a good life?  Explain why you do or do not think that feminist ethics could be a fruitful transformation of ethical theory and practice in the Western tradition.  Be sure to utilize and cite the readings from the week and specific examples that relate to your analysis.
