Carol Gilligan on the Female Psychology Deficit

Carol Gilligan: I compared women with what was said to be the human voice and said that the once that conversation had not included women, it is hard now to remember that was something that happened on release Different Voice came out in the 1980s, recently, relatively recently it is like people didn’t know, there were no women in the studies of how they treat heart attacks or in the medical as graduate student, we where told don’t put women in your studies, because it will just mess up your results. So, there was a problem in the representation of what was human and it was distortion a both man and women, but the distortion was different in terms of men where portrayed as having no feelings as not needing relationships, as being disembodied minds. Women where portrayed a wash in emotions and particular at certain times in the month kind of thing and having no self, that having relationships which doesn’t even make sense, because you do not have self whose in relationships that doesn’t make sense and being a sort of like run by our bodies and anatomy’s destiny. And that is the distortion of both, that’s what my work was about, this whole paradigm distorting our understanding of ourselves.

The paucity of women in psychological studies was striking Carol Gilligan says.
