We are looking at the notion of justice and are primarily going to be looking at the theory of John Rawls, whose account of justice as fairness is a good starting point to be thinking about justice questions.  We will also be looking at feminist accounts of justice, in particular how we should be thinking about structural injustice, when the structures help reinforce power differentials between people in different social groups.

The question is:

Identify a social group that you belong to which provides you with privilege.  What privileges do you experience as a member of that group that others, who do not belong to the group, can experience?
