Week 5 discussion: gender issues and virtue ethics
Choose either Option A or Option B and post a 150+ word discussion by Wednesday, 11:59 pm MT,
Be specific and give examples, using at least two outside references, to buttress your argument. Cite all sources in APA format.
“Men and women have different thought processes and require different approaches in life.”
B1: “Modern education systems are geared to educating females rather than males.”
Using your reading in this course so far and other research, discuss the ethical concepts referred to in this statement.
The second raises the question: “Are men and women significantly enough different that we need to treat them separately?” Note that this is a gender issue not a race issue. In the past race has been misused to make a similar argument. However, just because it is incorrect to use race as a basis for different treatment does that mean that gender also cannot be used as a basis for different treatment?
