CitationKorsgaard, Christine M. 1995. A note on the value of gender identification. In Women, Culture, and Development: A Study of Human Capabilities, ed. Martha Nussbaum and Jonathan Glover, 401-404. Oxford: Clarendon Press.
AbstractEngaging with Susan Wolf's question of what role the concept of gender ought to play in an ideal world, Korsgaard argues that gender does not and should not be a deep fact about the identity of human beings. Presumption of shared attributes, shared history, and shared fate, according to Korsgaard, regards where we, as human beings, stand in history, not about our nature. While it is especially difficult to not identify as women and men in a time when feminism is a central part of recent history, Korsgaard believes that with the achievement of equality, human beings will move on and share in non-gender-identified tasks.
