Title:
Corporate Governance and Ethics: A Feminist Perspective.
Authors:
Machold, Silke; Ahmed, Pervaiz K.; Farquhar, Stuart S.
Abstract:
The mainstream literature on corporate governance is based on the premise of conflicts of interest in a competitive game played by variously defined stakeholders and thus builds explicitly and/or implicitly on masculinist ethical theories. This article argues that insights from feminist ethics, and in particular ethics of care, can provide a different, yet relevant, lens through which to study corporate governance. Based on feminist ethical theories, the article conceptualises a governance model that is different from the current normative orthodoxy.
