In recent decades, many scholars have dedicated their attention to the nature and role of reactive attitudes in interpersonal morality, politics and the law. The theorising on these issues originates from Peter Strawson’s work on moral responsibility as well as other traditions which explore the role of attitudes and emotions in struggles for justice. Our aim in this conference is to examine reactive attitudes from the perspective of feminist theory by addressing two sets of questions. Firstly, we are interested in exploring the ways in which reactive attitudes – including in the original Strawsonian context of the ascription of moral responsibility – are gendered in the sense that the same actions are often met with different reactions depending on the gender ascribed to the actors. Secondly, building on the growing literature about the part that reactive attitudes should play in social and political life, we wish to look at the role of different reactive attitudes within the feminist movement. We aim to discuss the role of potentially problematic attitudes, such as anger and blame, in the feminist struggle as well as the place that attitudes often understood as more positive, such as forgiveness, might have in the fight for gender justice.
