In a different voice : psychological theory and women's development by Carol Gilligan( Book )

79 editions published between 1982 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 3,562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. This little book 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. It 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.--From publisher description
Meeting at the crossroads : women's psychology and girls' development by Lyn Mikel Brown( Book )

23 editions published between 1988 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,911 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the way to womanhood, what does a girl give up? For five years, Lyn Mikel Brown and Carol Gilligan, asking this question, listened to one hundred girls who were negotiating the rough terrain of adolescence. This book invites us to listen, too, and to hear in these girls' voices what is rarely spoken, often ignored, and generally misunderstood: how the passage out of girlhood is a journey into silence, disconnection, and dissembling, a troubled crossing that our culture has plotted with dead ends and detours. In the course of their research, Brown and Gilligan developed a Listener's Guide - a method of following the pathways of girls' thoughts and feelings, of distinguishing what girls are saying by the way they say it. We witness the struggle girls undergo as they enter adolescence only to find that what they feel and think and know can no longer be said directly. We see them at a cultural impasse, and listen as they make the painful, necessary adjustments, outspokenness giving way to circumspection, self-knowledge to uncertainty, authority to compliance. These changes mark the edge of adolescence as a watershed in women's psychological development, a time of wrenching disjunctions between body and psyche, voice and desire, self and relationship. Brown and Gilligan open their method to us and share their discoveries as they encourage girls at different ages to speak about themselves in conversation with women. They follow some of these girls over time, listening to changes in their distinct voices from one year to the next, addressing their successes and failures as they confront one barrier after another. -- Jacket
The birth of pleasure by Carol Gilligan( Book )

33 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in 6 languages and held by 1,290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tracing a lineage from Greek mythology to our own most intimate relationships, Carol Gilligan asks why, generation after generation, we relive tragic stories of loss and betrayal, and sets out to create a radical new map of love. Within the sweep of this book, Gilligan takes us through novels and dreams, ancient legends and contemporary research to an illumination of modern couples in crisis. She shows us that, although the women's movements of the 20th century have challenged patriarchal structures, the underlying patterns remain: the early channeling of boys into "masculinity, " the double consciousness of girls in adolescence, the silences between men and women, the splits between our social and inner selves. In the haunting love story of Psyche and Cupid, Gilligan discovers a crucial tale of resistance--showing us that the path of pleasure can be found in the heart of tragedy, that joy and harmony can defy anger and pain
Mapping the moral domain : a contribution of women's thinking to psychological theory and education( Book )

16 editions published between 1988 and 1999 in English and held by 1,182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the fourteen articles collected in this volume, Carol Gilligan and her colleagues expand the theoretical base of "In a Different Voice" and apply their research methods to a variety of life situations. The contrasting voices of justice and care clarify different ways in which women and men speak about relationships and lend different meanings to connection, dependence, autonomy, responsibility loyalty, peer pressure, and violence. By examining the moral dilemmas and self-descriptions of children, high school students, urban youth, medical students, mothers, lawyers, and others, the authors chart a new terrain: a mapping of the moral domain that includes the voices of women. In this new terrain the authors trace far-reaching implications of the inclusion of women’s voices for developmental psychology, for education, for women, and for men
Between voice and silence : women and girls, race and relationship by Jill McLean Taylor( Book )

13 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 1,145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"More than any other psychologist, Carol Gilligan has helped us to hear girls' voices just when they seem to be blurring and fading or becoming disruptive during the passage into womanhood. When adolescent girls - once assured and resilient - silence or censor themselves to maintain relationships, they often become depressed, and develop eating disorders or other psychological problems. But when adolescent girls remain outspoken it is often difficult for others to stay in relationship with them, leading girls to be excluded or labeled as troublemakers. If this is true in an affluent suburban setting, where much of the groundbreaking research took place, what of girls from poor and working-class families, what of fading womanhood amid issues of class and race? And how might these issues affect the researchers themselves? In Between Voice and Silence, Taylor, Gilligan, and Sullivan grapple with these questions. The result is a deeper and richer appreciation of girls' development and women's psychological health."--Jacket
Making connections : the relational worlds of adolescent girls at Emma Willard School by Carol Gilligan( Book )

14 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 1,097 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1981, with the support of the Geraldine Rockefeller Dodge Foundation, Emma Willard School undertook a groundbreaking study of adolescent female moral development in conjunction with Harvard psychologists Carol Gilligan and Nona Lyons. In addition to mapping new territory in the field of moral psychology, the Dodge Study was the first collaboration between a school and a team of scholars to pursue such research. The essays that grew out of the Dodge Study and appear in this volume represent, in Carol Gilligan's words, 'a series of exercises en route to a new psychology of adolescence and women.' As she also writes in the book's prologue, 'The observant twelve-year-old girl knows something that the adult woman has forgotten. As the river of a girl's life flows into the sea of Western culture, she is in danger of drowning or disappearing.' The Dodge Study begins to reveal the process in which that twelve-year-old changes into an adult woman."--Book jacket
Joining the resistance by Carol Gilligan( Book )

14 editions published between 1991 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 705 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In her new book Joining the Resistance Carol Gilligan reflects on the evolution of her thinking and shows how her key ideas were interwoven with her own life experiences. Her work began with the question of voice: who is speaking to whom, in what body, telling what stories about which relationships? By listening carefully she heard a voice that had been held in silence, and in the process realized the extent to which we - both women and men - had been telling false stories about ourselves."--Jacket

When boys become boys : development, relationships, and masculinity by Judy Y Chu( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Judy Y. Chu first encountered the four-year-old boys we meet in this book, they were experiencing a social initiation into boyhood. They were initially astute in picking up on other people's emotions, emotionally present in their relationships, and competent in their navigation of the human social world. However, the boys gradually appeared less perceptive, articulate, and responsive, and became more guarded and subdued in their relationships as they learned to prove that they are boys primarily by showing that they are not girls. Based on a two-year study of boys aged four to six, When Boys Become Boys offers a new way of thinking about boys' development. Chu finds that behaviors typically viewed as "natural" for boys reflect an adaptation to cultures that require boys to be emotionally stoic, competitive, and aggressive if they are to be accepted as "real boys." Yet even as boys begin to reap the social benefits of aligning with norms of masculine behavior, they pay a psychological and relational price for hiding parts of their authentic selves. Through documenting boys' perceptions of the obstacles they face and the pressures they feel to conform, and showing that their compliance with norms of masculine behavior is neither automatic nor inevitable, this accessible and engaging book provides insight into ways in which adults can foster boys' healthy resistance and help them to access a broader range of options for expressing themselves"
The deepening darkness : patriarchy, resistance, and democracy's future by Carol Gilligan( Book )

17 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why is America again fighting an unjust and limitless war? In this era of rising economic inequality and diminished human rights and values, why is America's political discussion distorted by religious fundamentalism, the fear of gay marriage, and the specter of abortion outlawed? Such contradictions within democracies arise from a patriarchal psychology still alive in our personal and political lives, in tension with the equal voice that is the basis of democracy. The Deepening Darkness traces the roots of this tension by joining Carol Gilligan's expertise in developmental psychology with David Richards's research into ethical resistance to injustice."--Jacket
