Also included, finally, are the complexly defined groupings that result when we theorize the political economy in terms of the intersection of class, 'race', and gender. In the recognition paradigm, in contrast, the victims of injustice are more like Weberian status groups than Marxian classes. Defined not by the relations of production, but rather by the relations of recognition, they are distinguished by the lesser esteem, honour, and prestige they enjoy relative to other groups in society. The classic case in the Weberian paradigm is the low-status ethnic group, whom dominant patterns of cultural value mark as different and less worthy.

To handle such cases, a theory of justice must reach beyond cultural value patterns to examine the structure of capitalism. It must consider whether economic mech­ anisms that are relatively decoupled from cultural value patterns and that operate in a relatively impersonal way can impede parity of parti­ cipation in social life. lO Thus, instead of endorsing either one of their paradigms to the exclusion of the other, I propose to develop what I shall call a two­ dimensional conception of justice.

Here we have a category that is a compound of both status and class, that implicates injustices of both maldistribution and misrecogni­ tion, whose distinctiveness is compounded of both economic differen­ tials and culturally constructed distinctions. Gender injustice can only be remedied, therefore, by an approach that encompasses both a politics of redistribution and a politics of recognition. Gender, moreover, is not unusual in this regard. 'Race', too, is a bivalent social differentiation, a compound of status and class.
