"Over the past ten years, I have been listening to people talking about morality and about themselves." (from the first line)

From the Publisher:
Carol Gilligan believes that psychology has persistently and systematically misunderstood women. Repeatedly, developmental theories have been built on observations of men's lives. Here, Gilligan attempts to correct psychology's misperceptions and refocus its view of female personality. The result reshapes our understanding of human experience.New printing of the 1982 edition (which is cited in BCL3 ) with a new (18 p.) Letter to Readers by the author.

Author Bio
Carol Gilligan
Renowned for groundbreaking research and writing on the development of adolescent girls, Carol Gilligan is the Patricia Albjerg Graham Professor of Gender Studies at the Graduate School of Education at Harvard University. Gilligan attended Hunter Elementary School and the Walden School in New York City. She received her B.A. from Swarthmore in 1958 and her M.A, from Radcliffe in 1960. She received her Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Harvard University in 1964. IN A DIFFERENT VOICE, her most famous and most influential book, was published in 1982, and she has collaborated on or authored many influential books in the field of gender studies. She is associated with a group of colleagues in the Harvard Project on Women's Psychology and Girls' Development. In 1984 she was named Woman of the Year by "Ms." magazine.


"How likely is it that a single book could change the rules of psychology, change the assumptions of medical research, change the conversation among parents and teachers and developmental professionals about the distinctions between men and women, boys and girls? Yet many who read Carol Gilligan's book 'In a Different Voice'...find that their views on gender will never be the same....Gilligan's work has changed the voice of psychology." 06/17/1996

New York Times Book Review
Theories of moral development are not mere abstractions. They matter-to the way children are raised, to female and male self-esteem...and that is why Carol Gilligan's book is important...[It] is consistently provocative and imaginative."
