Selbstbestimmung und Gerechtigkeit sind zwar allgemeine Wertvorstellungen, die jedoch in Konflikt zueinander geraten können. Auch das Ziel einer geschlechtergerechten Gesellschaft berührt dieses Spannungsfeld, da die Strategie gescheitert ist, Geschlechtergerechtigkeit über eine Ausblendung geschlechtlicher Unterschiede zu erreichen. Zwar ist es gelungen, Frauen stärker in der öffentlichen Sphäre zu verankern, doch kann ihre zivilisationsgeschichtlich starke Einbindung in das deepest nicht übergangen werden. Die andere denkbare Möglichkeit Geschlechtergerechtigkeit herzustellen, ist die Anerkennung und Aufwertung der privaten, weiblich dominierten Sphäre. Hier wird gezeigt, dass eine Aufwertung des Privaten nur über eine stärkere Einmischung des Öffentlichen, additionally der Politik, in das deepest geschehen kann, used to be zu einem Verlust von Autonomie führt. Es wird herausgearbeitet, dass die derzeitige Politik dabei ist, Frauen wieder stärker zu diskriminieren. Damit stellt sich die Frage: Wie kann ein liberaler Staat Geschlechtergerechtigkeit erreichen, ohne Werte wie Freiheit, Autonomie oder Selbstbestimmung zu gefährden?
