Editorial Reviews

Review

This [is a] carefully edited set of essays...While Gilligans's In a Different Voice would be a better introduction to her revisionist work on moral reasoning, this volume provides an application of her approach that will help educators, psychologists, and parents of teenaged girls listen and understand. (Patricia L. Linn Antioch Review)

[The book] is an illuminating and thought provoking collection of essays which explore themes in female adolescent psychological development...These papers relate particularly to a longitudinal study involving a series of interviews which took place between 1981 and 1984 with students at a day and boarding school for girls--Emma Willard School, New York...The authors try to give girls a 'voice'--to listen to what girls themselves had to say about 'the meaning of self, relationship and morality'. Through text which is rich with examples of the girls' own narratives, the authors examine a range of developmental topics...The arguments developed within the papers are both challenging and stimulating. They provide interesting reading and are likely to encourage readers to rethink and reframe their understanding of adolescent girls in Western culture. Recommended reading for anyone who has anything to do with the education of girls. (Sonia Sharp School Psychology International)

2 of 5 people found the following review helpful By phoebe on April 22, 2001
Format: Paperback
I am an alum of Emma willard (2000) and I think this book is important for anyone (esp. with a daughter or sister) to read. Ms. Hamner was the associate head of school while I was there and is an incredibly intelligent, not to mention friendly, woman. Her work on this subject helped make Emma Willard a great place to be a growing adolescent/woman and I think this book is valuable to anyone interested in gender studies and such.
