A Stanford University obituary paid tribute to Susan Okin, the Auckland-born author, lecturer, and activist described by a Stanford University colleague as “perhaps the best feminist political philosopher in the world.” The author of three acclaimed books – Women in Western Political Thought (1979), Justice, Gender and the Family (1989), and Is Multiculturalism Bad for Women?
