Andrew, Keller, and Schwartzman (2005) note the increased range of urgent national and international issues with which feminist philosophers and ethicists grapple. To sexual harassment, human rights violations, sexist media portrayals, chilly climates, inadequate social care policies, and everyday diminishment of women’s agency and potential in varied communication contexts (Buzzanell, Meisenbach, Remke, Sterk, & Turner, 2009), Andrew et al. add immigration policies, a “just war theory in the context of terrorism” (p. 3), and oppression in the global south. In these ethical considerations, feminist communication scholars orient toward “gender justice, a goal that takes into account the ways that gender always already intersects with race, ethnicity, sexuality, and class” (Dow & Condit, 2005, p. 449).
