Editorial Reviews

Review

"It is fun moving through this book with Gilligan as she chances on this or that element of patriarchy - in Freud, Lysistrata, Hawthorne, Marvell, Oresteia. And it is enlightening to watch her demolish the wheeze of a child's support scheme which never was or is the simple mother/father/child triad."
The Review of Arts, Literature, Philosophy, and the Humanities

"This is a small book about love, hope and empathy in the context of Carol Gilligan’s journey as a psychologist, a researcher, a writer and a feminist. It is a book that emerging social science researchers and clinical practitioners will find much in, particularly with regard to her passion for qualitative research and feminism."
Sex Roles

"Helps heal the split between reason and emotion, mind and body, self and relationships, especially as they relate to gender identity. There is much food for thought in this work."
Scientific and Medical Network

"An intelligent, mature and important contribution to the kind of feminism we all need and want … Gilligan has written an important book which should be read by all, not only by girls and women, but also by boys and men.  Her invitation for all to join the resistance should be heeded, for its beneficiaries belong to humans of all genders and ages.  In this sense, we should all count ourselves as feminists of Gilligan’s type and thus make way for a democratic society of caring equals."
USC Graduate Journal

"In Joining the Resistance, Gilligan makes a useful distincton in the debate about the ethic of care, by which her earlier work has been characterized and criticized, to emphasize her main theoretical point: The way forward out of patriarchy is a democratic solution that frees women and men to pursue a human ethic of care."
Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books

“Carol Gilligan is one of the pre-eminent psychologists of our time. Joining the Resistance is a leap forward in what has become her life-journey, connecting psychology to culture. The book stands on its own as a work of art; it is beautifully written and like the best sort of novel, full of surprises.”
Richard Sennett, New York University

"Original work expands our humane capacity. In Joining the Resistance, Carol Gilligan continues to inspire us. Hers is a generous art, clearing a road that leads to a thriving place - one of love and justice. Will we allow ourselves?"
Adrian Nicole LeBlanc, author of Random Family: Love, Drugs, Trouble, and Coming of Age in the Bronx

Carol Gilligan has written a concise and beautiful follow-up decades later to her well known "In a Different Voice", the game changing book about the ways in which boys and girls learn to see the world and describe it. In this new book she presents an evolving view of girls' and boys' developments in our world wherein there can be a choice between a "Patriarchal" society of rules about gender behavior and a more open, humane society without laws about who can love whom and how. I highly recommend the book to: girls, women, psychologists, psychiatrists and social workers, those interested in drama and literature and men who wish to be enlightened!

Her insights are that women are humans...humans have rights....end of story....I love it! So many nice stories in here that come to that conclusion but we need to be reminded every so often!

The book is a summary of some of Gilligan's research re. Teen girls. She also near the end quotes someone else's research on teen boys. She identifies some of the problems with patriarchal society and points to ways out. I have heard of Gilligan's for years but this is the first book of hers that I have read. My book club chose it.
