Paper Summary


Author’s Abstract1

  1. In this essay I contend that when applied to nonhumans who are property, the feminist ethic of care does not provide protection that extends beyond rights.
  2. Rather, when so applied, it is a form of new welfarist theory, which, like Peter Singer's position, seeks to accord greater weight to the interests of nonhumans but still preserves the hierarchy of humans, who have rights protection that is denied to nonhumans.
