Abstract

This article, in examining gender and justice, seeks to examine the relationship between feminist theory and social work. Specifically it reviews writings on social work ethics and suggests that little attention has been paid to feminist scholarship that resonates with social work practice. Focusing primarily on community care, it demonstrates how debates within feminism have become more complex and have problematized understandings of both care and justice. It argues that for social work it is unhelpful to dichotomize justice and care; we should aspire to just social work practice.
