Although many thoughtful critiques of political theory and the concept of justice have been offered from a feminist perspective, a comprehensive feminist theory of justice has not yet been articulated. This article proposes that not only does a feminist account of justice require an unconditional basic income, but also that is the only basis on which to defend the principle of unconditionality against the gender-biased claims of universal work or participation duties. It surveys feminist critiques of political theory, theories of justice and the androcentric models of citizenship. Together, these critiques suggest a more gender-inclusive model of citizenship and the broad outlines of a feminist theory of justice, in which an unconditional basic income plays a crucial role.
