Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Some have critiqued the work. Christina Hoff Sommers argues in The War Against Boys that "Gilligan has failed to produce the data for her research." Gilligan argued in response that "her findings have been published in leading journals and that Sommers' points are not accurate." In her article "Power, Resistance and Science," Naomi Weisstein makes a general argument against what she describes as "feminist psychologists" who "put forth a notion of female difference which, while no longer biologically based, is nevertheless essentialist, or at least highly decontextualized, for example, Carol Gilligan, In a Different Voice (1982); Sara Ruddick, Maternal Thinking: Towards a Politics of Peace (1990). That is, they assume that female difference is fixed, rather than contingent on social context."show more
