This chapter explores how the conditions of deliberation affect the definition of justice adopted by both individuals and groups, and how these concepts of justice influence their concrete policy decisions about income redistribution. The preferences of women and men tend to differ with respect to redistributive policies. These gender differences in policy preferences are directly relevant to the subject of deliberation and decision making. Moreover, the chapter shows that discussion under conditions that elevate women's status affects who sets the agenda, shapes the expression of women's and men's preferences, helps women to become more certain of their views about the proper ways to redistribute income, and, ultimately, affects the group's eventual decision.

Keywords:   deliberation, justice, income redistribution, women, men, gender differences, decision making
