Do Women and Men Speak in Different Voices? A Comparative Study of Self-Evolvement.
Bar-Yam, Miriam
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v32 n4 p247-59 1991
Compared women's (n=40) and men's (n=20) levels of self-evolvement based on Kegan's Constructive-Developmental Theory. Findings from U.S. military personnel in Europe revealed no gender differences in self-evolvement. Results suggest stereotypically masculine orientation toward individuation and increased autonomy and stereotypically feminine orientation toward attachment and dependence not necessarily based on innate male or female characteristics.
