Women ’ s Capabilities and Social Justice *

  title={Women ’ s Capabilities and Social Justice *},
  author={Martha C. Nussbaum and E. Freund},
We come from our family’s house to live in our husband’s house. If we mention our name in this house, they say, “Oh, that is another family”. Yet when it comes to working, they say, “What you earn is ours, because you are in this family’s house”, or “because you are working on this family’s land. Let the land be registered in our names, so that we will not always feel like we are in someone else’s family”. (Santokbehn, agricultural laborer, Ahmedabad)
