NEWDilemmas around marriage: Reviewing Minimizing MarriageThursday,January 9,2020
Marriage as a social system can both provide security or threaten one's life. Elizabeth Brake's Minimizing Marriage: Marriage, Morality and the Law offers an excellent yet controversial response to this dilemma. Here, the author proposes radical reforms to the marriage system focusing on relationships of care while getting rid of other constraints, from the perspective of feminism and political liberalism.
During this review event we would like to bring together the translators of the Japanese edition published last November, and experts on the field. In doing so, we would like to address the significance of this work and create an opportunity to rethink marriage alltogether.
