Frau? Mann? Oder? Das Denken über Geschlecht, Geschlechtsidentität und Geschlechterrollen ist im Wandel begriffen - auch in der Theologischen Ethik. Denn Gender birgt als analytische Kategorie gerade für ethische Fragestellungen ein erhebliches kritisches Potential. Betroffen davon sind unter anderem die Konzeption des sittlichen Subjekts und der Geschlechterdifferenz, die Fragen nach Natur und Körper des Menschen, Gerechtigkeitsprobleme, (reproduktions)medizinische und therapeutische Kontexte wie auch Diskurse um Norm und Normalität. Die vorliegende Publikation versammelt – als erstes Jahrbuch für Moraltheologie – zehn Beiträge, die sich ausgewählten moraltheologisch relevanten Feldern des Genderdiskurses nähern. Ziel dieses Buches ist es, Gender als ein Querschnittsthema theologischer Ethik sowohl in fundamentalethischer wie angewandt-ethischer Perspektive zu plausibilisieren. Ermöglicht werden soll so eine kritisch-konstruktive Auseinandersetzung mit den Herausforderungen der Genderfrage aus ethischer Perspektive wie auch die Reflexion auf eine gendersensible Theologische Ethik. Mit Beiträgen von: Klaus Baumann, Christof Breitsameter, Katharina Ebner, Stephan Goertz, Konrad Hilpert, Stefanie Knauß, Thomas Laubach (Weißer), Herta Nagl-Docekal, Benedikt Schmidt, Toni Tholen und Angelika Walser

Complicit Sisters

NGOs headquartered in the North have been, for some time, prominent actors in attempts to address the poverty, lack of political representation, and labor exploitation that disproportionally affect women from the global South. Feminist NGOs and NGOs focusing on women's rights have been successful in attracting attention to their causes, but critics argue that the highly educated elites from the global North and South who run them fail to effectively question the power hierarchies in which they operate. In order to give depth to these criticisms, Sara de Jong interviewed women NGO workers in seven different European countries about their experiences and perspectives on working on gendered issues affecting women in the global South as well as migrant women in the global North. Complicit Sisters untangles and analyzes the complex tensions women NGO workers face and explores the ways in which they negotiate potential complicities in their work. Unlike other studies looking at development workers "on the ground," this book examines the women NGO workers in the global North who work to influence high level gender advocacy and policy, alongside women NGO workers supporting migrant women within the global North - a unique combination. Weighing the women's first-hand accounts against critiques arising from feminist theory, postcolonial theory, global civil society theory and critical development literature, de Jong brings to life the dilemmas of "doing good."

This edited collection examines the globally rising phenomenon of civic innovation. Combining nuanced theory with rich empirical examples, this book defines the dynamic and complex process of civic innovation as the multiple economic, political and social processes where peoples, organizations, movements and ideas are shaping struggles for global justice on the interface of capitalism. Exploring Civic Innovation for Social and Economic Transformation reflects the increasingly holistic approach to development in terms of both teaching and research, and illustrates how civic innovation happens everywhere; at the global and institutional level as well as in communities and for individuals. Through conceptual debate and narrative accounts, this book explores the new practices emerging from varying economies, transformative empowerment strategies in global value chains, local politics of social movements and the struggles for rights in regards to race, gender and sexuality. Bringing together scholars from a range of disciplines, this book would be of interest to post-graduate students of development studies, with an interest in social research.

Das berühmte Standardwerk von Simone de Beauvoir. Die universelle Standortbestimmung der Frau, die aus jahrtausendealter Abhängigkeit von männlicher Vorherrschaft ausgebrochen ist, hat nichts an Gültigkeit eingebüßt. Die Scharfsichtigkeit der grundlegenden Analyse tritt in der Neuübersetzung noch deutlicher hervor.
