Theories of moral development are not mere abstractions. They matter―to the way children are raised, to female and male self-esteem, as ammunition for personal and political attack―and that is why Carol Gilligan's book is important… [It] is consistently provocative and imaginative. (Carol Tavris New York Times Book Review)
Girls in our society learn early on that they are expected to behave in certain ways. In her 1982 book In a Different Voice, Carol Gilligan, a psychologist at Harvard University, wrote about the powerful messages young girls receive from those around them. Girls are expected to be compliant, quiet and introspective. They soon learn that they should suppress any open expression of aggression or even strong non-compliant feelings. They also learn…to value relationships more than rules. (T. Berry Brazelton, M.D. New York Times Syndicate 2000-09-22)
It has the charge of a revelation… [Gilligan] flips old prejudices against women on their ears. She reframes qualities regarded as women's weaknesses and shows them to be human strengths. It is impossible to consider [her] ideas without having your estimation of women rise. (Amy Gross Vogue)
Gilligan's book is feminism at its best… Her thesis is rooted not only in research but in common sense… Theories of human development are never more limited or limiting than when their bias is invisible, and Gilligan's book performs the vital service of illuminating one of the deepest biases of all. (Alfie Kohn Boston Globe)
A profound and profoundly important book. It poses a challenge to psychology… But it may be just what we need to revitalize our field and bring it into a more meaningful alignment with reality. (Elizabeth Douvan Contemporary Psychology)
To those of us searching for a better understanding of the way men and women think and the different values we bring to public problems and to our private lives, [this book] is of enormous importance. (Judy Mann Washington Post)
An important and original contribution to the understanding of human moral development in both men and women. Carol Gilligan writes with literary grace and a real sensitivity to the women she interviewed… Her book has important implications for philosophical as well as psychological theory. (Lawrence Kohlberg)
