Family/Nussbaum: On the one hand, the family is a retreat from the individualistic, competitive society that liberal theories promote; on the other hand, however, families are also a (main) place of oppression of women, where they are not regarded as independent persons but as instruments and appendages of the family.
Nussbaum's capabilities approach is not directed against the institution of the family itself, but against its supposedly private character.
Consequently, rights of privacy refer only to the individual person and not to the family as an institution. According to Nussbaum, neither the family nor female love and care can be regarded as natural.
