This thesis mainly represents how the liberalism neglects woman as an individual and the issue of “justice within the family” in the liberalism discussion on the justice.
Having traced along the history of the liberalism development, I find, according to the related hypothesis, women don’t get involved in making the social contract, and moreover, the significant political domain is women-excluded. Susan M. Okin’s feminist critical analysis of Rawls’ theory of justice pointed out the injustice situation of women in the family had never been discussed yet despite Rawls’ presupposition of the family being the basic institution of the society. The negligence of family injustice in fact made his own theory imperfect.
However, it is a kind of “injustice within the family” that women have no rights to make their option of the family mode and profile; nor do they give meanings to the family. Housing difficulty for single women in current Taiwan society indicates injustice within the family, which causes negligence of women's welfare in the society. To sum up, this thesis is to examine if the project of the alternative family which women promote autonomously could be a chance for women to voice their imagination of the family.
