Feminist virtue ethics is an approach to issues in moral philosophy that draws from both one of the oldest approaches, virtue ethics, and one of the more recent developments in ethical theorizing, feminist ethics. It brings to the concerns that animate feminist ethics a particular orientation to the moral life, a set of questions, and an array of concepts that have long been of importance in virtue ethics, and to the concerns that animate virtue ethics, a certain perspective, a set of questions, and tools and methods that are distinctively feminist. Thus, an understanding of feminist virtue ethics requires understanding something of both traditional virtue ethics and feminist ethics.
