This is the little book that started a revolution, making women's
voices heard, in their own right and with their own integrity, for
virtually the first time in social scientific theorizing about
women. Its impact was immediate and continues to this day, in the
academic world and beyond. Translated into sixteen languages, with
more than 700,000 copies sold around the world, In a Different
Voice has inspired new research, new educational initiatives, and
political debate--and helped many women and men to see themselves
and each other in a different light.Carol Gilligan believes that
psychology has persistently and systematically misunderstood
women--their motives, their moral commitments, the course of their
psychological growth, and their special view of what is important
in life. Here she sets out to correct psychology's misperceptions
and refocus its view of female personality. The result is truly a
tour de force, which may well reshape much of what psychology now
has to say about female experience.
