Carol Gilligan's Theory of Sex Differences in the Development of Moral Reasoning during Adolescence.
Muuss, Rolf E.
Adolescence, v23 n89 p229-43 Spr 1988
Gilligan's work on sex differences in moral reasoning, perception of violence, resolution of sexual dilemmas, and abortion decisions poses a major challenge to Kohlberg's theory because of its feminist perspective of moral development. Gilligan suggests Kohlberg's demonstration of males and females attaining different levels of moral development reveals gender bias, as different developmental stages exist for females. (Author/KS)
