John Rawls on Gender Roles - Dictionary of Arguments

I 99
Gender Roles/Rawls: Justice as Fairness evaluates a social system from the position of equal civil rights and the different levels of prosperity and income.
However, there are natural properties that lead to the unequal distribution of relevant positions and which cannot be changed, e. g. gender roles.
Inequality/solution/Rawls: here the difference principle helps (See Difference Principle/Rawls) to mitigate inequalities: disadvantaged groups must always benefit from inequality. However, such inequalities rarely occur.
In cases of conflict, the interests of a more general viewpoint outweigh the interests of a more individual position.
