Should They? 2022-06-01T15:05:01+02:00 Rona Dinur <p>In her recent book, <em>Faces of Inequality </em>(2020), Moreau aims at developing a normative account of discrimination that is guided by the main features of anti-discrimination law. The critical comment argues against this methodology, indicating that due to indeterminacy relative to their underlying normative principles, central anti-discrimination norms cannot fulfill this guiding role. Further, using the content of such norms to guide ethical discussions is likely to be misleading, as it reflects evidentiary considerations that are unique to the legal context. The critical comment’s claims are developed based on a close examination of indirect discrimination (or disparate impact) norms, and, as such, have wider implications for ongoing moral and political debates that are heavily influenced by the content of these norms.</p> 2022-11-06T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Rona Dinur Review of Claudia Goldin's Career and Family: Women’s Century-Long Journey toward Equity.
